Tribute Presentation to Players

Tribute to James

Players and parents alike were invited to a tribute presentation at the diamond where Baseball Calgary designated the east diamond "Home" dugout to be now called the "Tonks Dugout".  A plaque is mounted in James' honor.  Although the new boys coming up did not know James, he loved the game of baseball and spent much of his time teaching others the elements of the game.  Present were his mother, Candy Adams and his brother Shane Graham.
