Early life and playing career

Born in Cheverly, Maryland, Hayes grew up in North Platte, Nebraska and graduated from St. Patrick High School.

He batted .317 with 48 RBI (in 53 games) and threw out 18 of 21 runners attempting to steal.[2][4] Hayes was the Cubs' first-round draft selection and the 13th overall pick in 1978.[1] In two years in the majors, he played in five games and had nine at-bats, two hits, one double, .222 batting average, .222 on-base percentage, .333 slugging percentage, and 3 total bases.
