Ten-year-old Jeffrey Hayek was a smiley redhead who loved baseball—and life.
He played pitcher and first base, and lived for the big strikeout. Without warning, clotting complications in Jeff’s head took him away from us on June 26, 2007. To celebrate Jeff’s life, the Hayek family has partnered with the Linganore Oakdale Urbana Athletic Association (LOUYAA) to build a “field of dreams” baseball diamond for the youth of Frederick County. We’re now raising money to pay for and maintain the field, add amenities like a scoreboard and lighting, and pursue other local youth baseball initiatives.
