Former Duluth-Superior Dukes Manager, Ed Nottle, turns 70 years old today, October 22nd, 2009. Nottle, or “Singin’ Ed” as he was commonly referred to given his propensity to break out in song on many occasions, was a manager in the Northern League from 1993-2000 with the Sioux City Explorers, and in 2001 with the Dukes (now the Kansas City T-Bones franchise). Ed, who signed his first professional baseball contract in 1959, has now been in pro baseball for 50 years in the capacity of player, coach, or manager. Please join the T-Bones in wishing Ed a very Happy Birthday!
