FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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.”

Joseph Kirley

Joseph Kirley was born on June 15, 1924 at Ft. Pierre, SD to Frank and Muriel (Sonnenschein) Kirley. He attended school at Orton Flat and graduated from PHS in 1942. Joe was a 60 year member of the American Legion and he was also a lifetime member. He was Post 8’s commander in 1970 and served as Legion athletic officer for 15 years. He was also a lifetime member of the VFW and the DAV, serving as the latter’s commander in 1986-87. He belonged to the Pierre Senior Center where he was a former member of the board, and he was also a member of the Pierre Athletic Booster Club and a past president. He also was a former member of the Pierre Jaycees, serving as its president in 1957-58, and the 40 and 8, serving as its Chef du Gare in 1974. Joe served the young people in Pierre in many different ways he helped establish the Boys and Girls Club and was on the executive board for 40 years until retiring in 1996. He served two terms on the city’s recreation board. He was active in Legion ball ever since the 1960’s, he enjoyed taking the boys to their out of town games, he also served on the Post 8 baseball board from its inception until retiring in 1997. He was chosen as Legion Baseball Booster of the Year. Before his total involvement in Legion ball, Joe was charter member of the Basin League board of directors when the Pierre Cowboys played here in the semi-pro league in the ‘50s and ‘60s. His biggest thrill was the chance to be base umpire at three games-twice with Lucky Kortan and once with Bob Sage. Joe also served on the selection committee for the Pierre High School Athletic Hall of Fame. Above all Joe was a fan of all sports, especially the Twins and Vikings.

In Memory of Joe Post 8 Baseball has established the 13/14 Joe Kirley Memorial Tournament.

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.
