Hancock School District Buys Lemay Baseball Association Fields

The Hancock Place School District has purchased Heine Meine Field for $1 from the Lemay Baseball Association, said Superintendent Kevin Carl. The school had previously leased Heine Meine, which is in the center of the district, for soccer, softball and baseball games.

The Lemay Baseball Association will continue to use the fields on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays for its leagues, Carl said. The district will take over maintaining the fields.

The fields cover nine acres near Lemay Ferry Road and Little Broadway. The property was named for Heine Meine, a St. Louis Browns and Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher in the 1930s who owned a bar near the field, according to the association's website. The diamonds were built in 1939.
