    I loved finding this in my search for Bun Hayes today. Bun was my grandfather and my son, named Hayes, is a newly committed pitcher at Morehouse! The HBCU tradition continues.

    We’ll keep a lookout for Hayes. Bun was a great one! A number of years back, your mom sent me some scans of some family photos of him. As I recall, one was of him playing in the band at Mary Potter High School in North Carolina
