Sioux Falls Teacher Honored During MLB All-Star Game

July 11, 2014, 6:00 PM by Don Jorgensen

Sioux Falls Teacher Honored During MLB All-Star Game
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A Sioux Falls teacher is about to embark on a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Jeff Kayl will be one of dozens of teachers from across the country who get to participate in the pregame festivities during the Major League Baseball All-Star Game next week that will pay tribute to educators who have made a difference in the lives of young children.

To say Jeff Kayl is a big time sports fan would be an understatement. 

"I'm a huge Twins fan and um I love it," Kayl said.

Kayl has three rooms in his house dedicated to sports memorabilia, including the Minnesota Twins. From bats and balls to helmets and bobbleheads, Kayl and his dad have been collecting souvenirs for decades.

"Big time fan, we grew up going to games at Metropolitan Stadium and the Metrodome," Kayl said.

Next Tuesday, Kayl who teaches at Axtell Park and Joe Foss dealing with at risk students, will be one of 140 educators who will unveil a large American Flag across the diamond at Target Field in Minneapolis.

"I've never been on Target Field, so this will be hallow ground for me, probably grab some dirt or something and put it in my pocket, I'm so excited," Kayl said.

Kayl was selected to take part in the festivities through a Facebook contest. Even though he's a huge sports fan and a season ticket holder to the Twins home games, his passion is still teaching.

"Baseball is something for kids, gives them an outlet, helps them with things to do and stuff and baseball recognizing educators is pretty important, I think we have an important role in life for them to honor educators is pretty special," Kayl said.

Kayl hopes to meet former Minnesota Twins Manager Tom Kelly and New York Yankee All-Star Derek Jeter.

Kayl wants his brother-in-law to take a picture of him when he's down on the field, so he can add the framed picture to his collection.
