Pete Vonachen was
Peoria minor league baseball.
The former Chiefs owner died
Monday. He was 87.
Even though his role was limited in
his later years, you could always feel
his presence at what's now known as Dozer
Park.
Fun at the old ballpark
was his credo, a philosophy he
shared with his world-famous best friend,
Harry Caray.
