CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The Kennedy high school baseball team is honoring Coach Herkelman at the state tournament this week.

Coach Herkelman passed away on Friday following a stroke.

"I know we will play hard," said head coach Bret Hoyer.

While playing, Hoyer also tells me the team will be wearing undershirts with coach Herkelman's number 29 on their backs.

They will also be sporting decals of the number 29 on their helmets and hats.
