I’m on an opening-weekend road trip to Myrtle Beach, S.C., posting this morning from the motel room.
Last night, at the opening game, the Pelicans, Class A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves, honored the memory of longtime pitching coach Bruce Dal Canton by retiring his number 43 in pregame ceremonies  at BB&T Coastal Field.
Dal Canton’s widow, Helene, is at left in the photo above, as the team retired his number. Below, the team named the clubhouse for him and painted his number on the roof.
