A well-known baseball coach and businessman in La Crescent has died.
Rick Boyer coached the La Crescent High School baseball team for 17 years, retiring last spring after COVID-19 forced the season to be cancelled.
His Lancers won the 2009 Class 2A state championship and went to state five times. They also took third in 2010 and were runners-up in 2011. Boyer finished with a 326-143 record.
In 2006 and 2007, Boyer coached in the minor leagues, as manager of the La Crosse Loggers baseball club.
Boyer was the owner of Boyer’s Budget Furniture in La Crosse, running a business which his family has owned for more than a century.
