Long Time LABL Hollywood Stars Member Tom Hayden Dies at 76

Submitted by Jess Whitehill, Los Angeles Baseball League 

(Photo courtesy of Joe Doherty) Longtime Los Angeles Baseball League member and Hollywood Star player Tom Hayden died on October 23, 2016 at the age of 76.  The Hollywood Stars also competed in the first MSBL World Series in 1988 and Tom was most probably a member of that team.

Tom was known as a student activist and co-founding member of the SDS (Students for a Democratic Society), as a radical for his role in the protests at the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention, for his marriage to Jane Fonda, for his 18 years in the California Senate and Assembly and his tireless work for underdogs everywhere, from farm workers to prison inmates to the environment.

Tom also loved baseball and played for many years on the Hollywood Stars in the labl and in various municipal leagues and tournament teams. The program for his memorial at UCLA on February 19 contained tributes from President Obama and Hillary Clinton, but the most inspiring page was this picture of Tom in the batting cage and his quote of what playing adult baseball meant to him. I'm sure most of us can relate as we "confront and resist mortality." Tom will be missed on and off the field.
