Graydon “Soup” Stromme, 91, legendary manager of the Duluth-Superior Dukes minor league baseball team, made a nostalgic return to recently renovated Wade Stadium last week.

In a delightful story, Duluth News reporter Jon Nowacki brings perspective to “Soup’s” return to the historic ballpark, telling the story of his inspirational leadership and widespread influence as a coach, teacher and athlete.

“Soup” is now a resident of Ecumen Lakeshore in Duluth.
