Davis: I knew Cougars before they were The Cougars
Jan 3, 2016 3:24 PM - I was there for Opening Day. Opening day of 1991, that is. It was a raw, blustery April day, and several of us Daily Herald types decided a field trip to see the new minor league baseball team's debut would be a hoot. My most vivid recollection was my not-yet-2-year-old son Rob toddling up the concrete steps, falling and cutting his lip. Not a happy camper. In fact, we all were pretty miserable, and most of us left by about the third inning. No clue if the new team, the Kane County Cougars, won.
