Tuesday’s Bob Gibson Heritage Project banquet turned out to be a feast for baseball junkies in attendance. Three men with links to Omaha’s baseball past — Jack McKeon, Frank White and Bill Beck — traded stories, memories and observations about today’s game for more than an hour in the dinner that drew about 300 to the La Vista Conference Center.

With winds of 27 mph blowing out to right field, and at times gusting to 45 mph, conditions were ripe for a team with lots of left-handed hitters. Unfortunately for Omaha manager Brian Poldberg, he had two lefties on the roster, and Round Rock had just enough as the Express dealt the Storm Chasers an 8-2 loss in front of 3,631 at Werner Park.

Matt Fields was done. He'd played six seasons in the Tampa Bay organization, hitting 83 homers while reaching Class AA, but the Rays released him. He had played another season of independent ball, but he was 25 and engaged to be married, and ready to go back to school to become a teacher while also possibly doing some kind of baseball instruction.
