Historical Society To Host Baseball Program In Pierre

Thursday, May 12, 2016

The South Dakota State Historical Society Museum, in conjunction with its exhibit “Play Ball! The National Pastime in South Dakota,” will host a program about the former Northern League of baseball teams from South Dakota at 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 21, at the Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre. 

Paul Gertsen of St. Paul, Minn., will present “Baseball That Mattered: 25 Years of the Northern League in South Dakota” about the teams from South Dakota in the former Northern League. Gertsen’s program will address the history of a league that featured players such as future Major Leaguers Hank Aaron, Jim Palmer, Lou Brock and Willie Stargell.

There is no fee to attend the program but regular admission fees will apply to visit the baseball exhibit and museum galleries.

Gertsen donated a large collection of Northern League materials to the South Dakota State Historical Society in 2014, some of which are now on display in the museum’s baseball exhibit. 

Gertsen has deep South Dakota ties, having been raised in Aberdeen and graduated from Huron High School. He lived in Pierre before taking a job with the Saint Paul Saints and later with the Minnesota Moose. He presently works for the City of St. Paul.

Oahe Hockey Association To Consider Purchasing PAYSA Rink

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

On Monday, the Oahe Hockey Association board of directors will discuss the possible purchase of the PAYSA facility in northeast Pierre. No final action or decision will be made at the May meeting.

The OHA has a new opportunity to buy the PAYSA rink and real estate. Because use of the PAYSA facility has become an important part of Capitals hockey, the board is considering the potential benefits and costs of the offer.

Oahe Hockey Association Board Communications Director Mike Mueller says this possible decision for Oahe Hockey is prompted by opportunity…

(Mike OHA 1)

No final action or decision will be made at the meeting. Mueller adds that the Oahe Hockey Association began leasing the PAYSA rink a few years ago…

(Mike OHA 2)

The PAYSA rink also provides Capitals skaters with off-season development opportunities; including drop-in/stick and puck programs, spring and fall scrimmage leagues, and summer recreation and camps.

Mueller adds that, in no way, would the PAYSA rink replace the Fort Pierre Expo Center as the home of Oahe Hockey…

(Mike OHA 3)

The purchase would be intended to ensure ongoing operation and availability of the existing PAYSA rink. 

If the board decides to continue consideration after the May board meeting, a formal proposal will be developed for final action at a future board meeting. Any formal proposal to purchase the PAYSA facility will be shared with all OHA members in advance, with notice of the meeting’s time, date and location.
