Minnie Jane Burns died on Sunday at the age of 95. Her passing should not go unmarked by the Mississippi baseball community. The Carthage native, a sweet and multi-talented woman, was the widely acknowledged No. 1 fan of the Jackson Mets/Generals/Senators. She attended the first game at Smith-Wills Stadium in 1975 and missed very few during professional baseball’s 30-year run at the old ballpark on Lakeland Drive. Funeral services are Saturday at Madison Methodist Church Chapel.
