Dedication Ceremony Ed Scheck Park

On Friday, May 7, 2021 beginning at 5:00 p.m., a dedication ceremony will be held at Ed Scheck Park, 4792 Mayfield Drive, to celebrate the naming of the youth baseball field, Tyler Hurd Field. The naming of the baseball field is to celebrate and memorialize Tyler Hurd, a Bettendorf High School student who died unexpectedly on his 17th birthday.

Tyler grew up playing baseball and was a dedicated member of the BPV Youth Baseball Organization for 10 years. Ed Scheck Park was Tyler’s neighborhood park. He not only played baseball there, but also visited often with friends. To honor his legacy and love of baseball, his family created a memorial fund for various improvements to the field, as well as the park and playground. The City of Bettendorf is honored to name this popular baseball field after Tyler, and invite the public to attend the dedication ceremony. 

Light refreshments will be provided, and a fun game of wiffle ball will be played in Tyler’s memory.
