They call themselves "The Wingmen".
These young men, including Mike's brother Brian, are part of a close-knit group
of Mike's childhood and high school friends who played sports together,
took beach jaunts and ski trips together, partied together, and remained close
even after they scattered to different colleges.
Now they have graduated college and they go to work every day,
but when they come home they play ball.
They belong to a local baseball league, and they named their team The Wingmen
as a tribute to Mike.
Some of them even coach baseball to local youngsters as Mike would have.
These young men are Mike's most trusted and loyal friends.
They shared the best of times with Mike; they shared the worst when they lost him.
Some of them helped carry him to his resting place.
Now all of them carry him in their hearts.
They are tight ... They are solid ... They are his Wingmen.

|All of us on this team were very fortunate to
not just play with a great group of guys,
but to honor a lifelong friend.
Love you, Mike.
