The devastating news was reported on Facebook by Washoe Little League, they wrote, “With the heaviest of hearts, we hate to inform our community that we lost one of our own, way too soon. Hayden played baseball for Washoe, his brother Jaxson is in his senior year, his father Todd runs a major league team and serves on the board of directors, and his mother Danita is always present during the season. The Grenert Family exemplifies what we mean when we preach “community” baseball, and they are an integral part of what makes Washoe so special. This family has been there for us all, instilling in our children a love for the game. If you are able, please consider donating whatever you can to a family who has shown us so much love over the years. Please reach out for the link to a meal train put up to assist them with supper.”
