A storm this past summer completely damaged the grandstand at Hank Overin Field. The “Rebuild Hank” Committee has been formed to work with the City of Wayne to not only get the grandstand rebuilt, but to make other needed improvements to the park which has not had improvements since 1981. These improvements will require funds to be raised. Please contact Steve Lutt at 402-369-1808 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. You can also contact Pat Melena at 402-375-2430.
