2018 Hometown Hero Announced

Friday, April 20, 2018

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.”

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.

Hyde Stadium renovations continue on track.

Thursday, December 17, 2015
 

The demolition portion of the Hyde renovation project is all but over and the rebuilding has begun. The new state of the art lights are in place and concrete pours for the dugouts have been done. Also the ‘concession/press box/ bathrooms building’ is up and enclosed.  There are even blocks in place around the area behind home plate. Also the distances for the new outfield fences have been shot. Progress on the Hyde project continues pushing forward to next seasons grand re-opening.

Not actually part of the Hyde project but an important project next to Hyde is the City renovating the walking path along Capital Creek which is not only coming along well but is definitely making the creek area more scenic and accessible.

The entire area is going to be much more practical and up to date while keeping the classy ambience that Hyde has always been known for.

A donor recognition event called Take The Field is scheduled for Wednesday night, June 22.
