The city baseball field was named after longtime successful coach Hank Overin in 1993 following his retirement. He coached the Wayne American Legion baseball teams for 29 years, leading them to eight state championships. It is the current location for Junior and Senior Legion baseball games and practices from April to August. It is maintained by the Recreation Department staff.
A powerful wind storm caused extensive damage to Hank Overin Field in the summer of 2014. Fundraising is underway to couple with insurance dollars to rebuild the Hank Overin grandstand complex. A rendering of the project is included below:
