    Happy Birthday Rod, many years ago when you won the title in Sioux, City. We from the Quad Cities had shared a army helmet full of alchol with you at Wanda’s when she was located down by the old stock yards. Have a super birthday. If i am right i think that was the name of the bar, to old to remember that far back.

    Great article about a great man. Congrats Rod.

    The Sioux City bar is called Rhonda’s. By the way, Rhonda is now running for a City Council seat.

    We had a team in Prairie du Chien Wis. Rod would come to Prairie tourneys and is a first class guy! Next time in Madison, I’ll stop at the Farm!

    After playing for Rod Peterson from 1985-1989, I can sincerely say I can agree with all the positive comments made regarding the man, and the sponsor he was. He put me on the softball map!! He taught me a lot of things in my time spent with him, things that still shape my decisions to this day. Working alongside him, at his house, farms,cottage or wherever I was able to glean a lot of wisdom from him, as well as his dad. ( I miss that guy) Best wishes always to you Rod for giving so much to so many:). Mike Piechnik
