will be held at Hyde Stadium beginning at 7:00 PM.

A message from  our Tournament Director -

I would like to thank everyone for their hard work this past weekend.  I felt we hosted the best possible state tournament we were capable of hosting.  I can’t count the number of times we were complimented on how fine of a job we did.  That speaks volumes on how hard you all worked.  I know of a few minor complaints, but you will always get that.  I would ask that you forward this e-mail to the people who working in your specific areas of the tournament.  I would most certainly forget someone.  Again, thank you all.  You went above and beyond to make my job as tournament director very very easy.  I can’t thank you enough for your efforts.

2018 Hometown Hero Announced

Friday, April 20, 2018


Post 8 Baseball To Recognize Iverson At Free Roast Beef Feed

Pierre, SD – April 20, 2018 – Post 8 Baseball will be honoring Jim Iverson as its 2018 Hometown Hero during the annual Roast Beef Feed from 5:30-7 p.m. Wednesday, May 2, at the Pierre American Legion Cabin.

The public is invited to attend. Freewill donations will also be appreciated.

Iverson has been instrumental in the success of the Post 8 baseball program.  After coaching the A Teener team for a year, Iverson became the head coach of the Legion team. In his five years as head coach,  Iverson lead the Legion team to three third-place finishes  in the state tournament. Iverson’s Legion teams also won the Terry Jablonski Wood Bat Classic three times and the Doug Koester Memorial tournament three times. 

Iverson holds a coaching record of 227-128.  Iverson came out of retirement in 2014 and coached the 14-year-old Teeners to a third-place finish in the state tournament.

According to former Post 8 Legion player Sam Koenecke, Iverson was known for his hard-working mentality and player “chalk talks.”  His motto was “Baseball is a representation of life.  If we play well, winning takes care of itself.”

The New Hyde Stadium Sound System

Wednesday, January 6, 2016


Hyde Stadium Sound System

 On Tuesday night, the Pierre City Commission approved & awarded a bid to CommTech to install a new sound system for the Hyde Stadium Renovation Project. The initial cost of the sound system is 17,810 dollars but the Post 8 Baseball program will only pay 7,810 dollars due to CommTech owner Chris Anderson donating 10,000 dollars of the cost.  Construction continues on the Hyde Stadium Renovation Project. The project is expected to be complete for the beginning of the Post 8 Baseball season.
