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.

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.”
