Tony Clements a fine softball player

Of all of Tony Clements' many accomplishments, an important one was missed.

Tony, who died June 9, was also a fine softball player, having played at a high level of computation for many years. He was the player/manager of the local Champaign IGA team that often competed in high level tournaments in other states to better prepare the team for state tournament competition.

In 1974, Champaign IGA won the state men's slow-pitch tournament, played in Jacksonville.

Tony and his teammates were in attendance when they were honored on April 9, 2017, as they were inducted into the Illinois ASA Softball Hall of Fame in ceremonies held in Decatur.
