Crean, LaRussa & Thibodeau attend Silver Hawks game

Not only did the Silver Hawks bring in a big crowd for their Memorial Day game against the Lansing Lugnuts, but they also had 3 big name VIPs on hand.

Former St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa, Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, and Indiana University basketball coach Tom Crean all watched South Bend win 9-2 from the Four Winds Field Home Plate Suite.

LaRussa was recently hired by the Arizona Diamondbacks front office, the MLB team South Bend is affiliated with, and was in town to watch some of the team's top prospects. Crean and Thibodeau were just in attendance as friends of LaRussa.

During the 6th inning the trio was shown on the jumbotron and each coach individually received a large applause from the crowd.

A spokesperson from the Silver Hawks says they would not be surprised to see LaRussa attend future games at Four Winds Field.
