Post 8 Roast Beef Fundraiser - Hometown Hero announced!

Monday, April 15, 2019

Post 8 Baseball Roast Beef Fundraiser and Home Town Hero

Post 8 baseball is pleased to announced that we will be hosting our Annual Roast Beef Fundraiser on Thursday, April 25th from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM at the American Legion Cabin in Pierre.

In the tradition of the Roast Beef Fundraiser, we also present our Home Town Hero award to those individuals that have contributed in either time, talent, or financially over the years to the Post 8 Baseball program. This years recipients are Dr. James Trimble and the Russ Snyder Memorial Scholarship donors. 

This is the year the 20th anniversary of the Russ Snyder Memorial Scholarship which award aids Post 8 players and their collegiate aspirations.

Russ Snyder played Post 8 Legion in 1974 and 1975, went on to become a two-time all-conference selection at the University of South Dakota.

Dr. James Trimble was a teammate of Russ. At Snyder’s funeral in 2000, he and others wanted to do something positive in memory of his love for the game and it was then Dr. Trimble came up with the scholarship to honor Russ’ hard work, leadership and dedication. Russ died at the age of 43.

Please join us for a great meal, including roast beef sandwiches, Bob's baked beans, coleslaw, chips, desserts and soda. We hope to see you there.

New Post 8 Scholarship Opportunity Announced

Thursday, March 7, 2019

Robert Disburg Memorial Scholarship 

Post 8 Baseball in cooperation with the South Dakota Community Foundation is pleased to announce this scholarship opportunity for Pierre Post 8 Baseball Alumni. 

The following information is a partial transcript from Kelly Nelson, Program Accountant for the South Dakota Community Foundation. "One of the most rewarding aspect of my job with the South Dakota Community Foundation is the opportunity to work with generous individuals and families who want to impact the lives of South Dakotans. The Robert Disburg Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established to provide scholarships for players from the American Legion Post 8 baseball team, Pierre, SD. This scholarship is a permanently endowed fund within our organization. The scholarship is available annually for players beginning in the 2019 school year and the total amount available for distribution is $450."

This scholarship would typically be awarded to an outgoing high school senior, but because we have no seniors in our program this year, we have opened the application to anyone having participated in the Post 8 baseball program that is currently continuing their education.

The deadline for the application is April 15th, 2019.

Application can be found by clicking on this link.

If you have any questions regarding the application or eligibility requirements please contact Bob Gray at 224-5959.
