Field name officially dedicated to Dave Mooney 02 Jul 15

A big crowd was on hand Wednesday night in Hutchinson as many showed up to pay tribute to the late Dave Mooney.  Part of the baseball park is officially renamed the Dave Mooney Memorial Baseball Complex.  A presentation occured for about an hour before Mooney’s son Pat took his Creighton Prep team from Nebraska and played the Hutchinson American Legion team.  There were emotional moments and there was laughter, but above all Mooney’s love of baseball was plain to see from all the good things people talked about him.  On the field Pat Mooney’s Creighton Prep team beat Hutchinson 16-6 in a game that saw 5 Home Runs hit, including ones from Keegan Macemon and Jake Arlt of Hutchinson.
