Chiefs Band Leader Hospitalized

Prayers and well wishes.

Long-time Chief's band leader Tony Dipardo is hospitalized. His family is asking for prayers.

The family said Dipardo is in serious condition and was hospitalized last Friday.

Dipardo has been a part of the "TD Pack Band" since the Chiefs arrived in 1963 and led the band for 20 years before his daughter Patti took over in 1983. But, the 95-year-old remains a fixture on the sidelines with his signature trumpet.

Tony Dipardo is part of what makes the Chiefs and their history so storied. We're pulling for you Tony.
