It is with great sadness

July 7th, 2016. Hastings MN. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our long time friend, board member, former president, unrelenting baseball fan and all around great man, Doug Weimer.  During the remainder of the 2016 season, a moment of silence will be observed for Doug prior to the playing of the National Anthem.

With the shock of Doug's passing, we have not been able to put to paper ideas to properly honor a man that has given so much of his time, energy, love and financial support to this great organization. Please watch this space for information for a future event to honor Doug the best we can.

Visitation is 5-7pm after the Hawks play the Miesville Mudhens on 7/17 with a service to follow at 7pm. All are invited to attend.

A message from our current President:

July 7th was a Sad day for Hastings Baseball. We were informed that Hawks Vice President and our friend passed away this morning.

The last thing he said to his best friend was "I'm going to play baseball now."

Doug Weimer gave all he could to Amateur/ Town Ball. He wanted so desperately to see it succeed for generations to come so families could see a great game up close and personal, in its raw, beautiful form. Guys that play for the love of the game, not the big money.

2-3 years ago, we started the crazy venture of building a press box. His dream for Veterans park. Not long after, he looked me in the eyes and told me, With all the delays and hiccups we had, he was not going to live to see that dream become a reality. I told him BS, he's going to not only see it get built, but be able to see a game from it. He did, I remember the look on his face, his eyes swell up with pride.
Thank you Doug Weimer for passing your love of the game on to so many others.
