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 Doug Weimer 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.
