Minor League Baseball is all about family fun – and the Chiefs really put the “family” into it. Syracuse native and “head chief,” Tex Simone became General Manager in 1970 and held the position until he passed the torch to his son John in 1997. His daughter, Wendy, is the clubs’ Director of Merchandising.
During our time in Syracuse, Tex, John, and Wendy shared family stories about growing up with the Chiefs. Since we met, the Simones have treated us like family as well.
While discussing the railroad theme, Tex brought in an old American Flyer model train Wendy and John played with as kids. Tex asked us to reference this model in our initial sketches. Tune in tomorrow, to see the work unfold in detail!
