Gaddis honors late Sons of Ben member in first start of 2017

Ray Gaddis made his first start of 2017 Saturday against Montreal, and when he took the field, he did so honoring Eric Shertz, a Sons of Ben member who passed away in 2014. 

Shertz was an inaugural Sons of Ben member and had attended nearly every Union match before he passed. His son, Gabe, still regularly attends games. Shertz's seat in the River End has a plaque dedicated to his memory.
