Ernie will be greatly missed. R.I.P. Mr. Hays. Rest in His hands now. God must have one hell of a band up there now. I guess He was just waiting for you to make your entrance.

I met you Ernie while I was working as your dental hygienist. I never knew what to expect........an uncensored joke, a word of wisdom or an array of facts and stories that never ceased to amaze me ! You were kind of a horn dog....but always a gentlemen! I am so glad our paths crossed! We will miss you, but you made a huge imprint on our hearts. I know heaven knew you were coming.....they heard you playing the Budweiser Song on the organ! Thanks Ernie!

When the Cardinals made their move to Busch Stadium III, I wasn't too excited about leaving the memories of Busch II behind. That all changed when I walked into the new stadium in '06 and heard Ernie's familiar tunes coming from the organ. For me, hearing Ernie play the organ was a big part of making the new place seem like home. My fiance knew how much I enjoyed Ernie's music that she arranged for us to meet him after a game that year. He was very gracious and seemed appreciative that we appreciated his talents. We still have the picture we took with him that day. Thanks, Ernie, for sharing your love of music with Cardinal Nation.

Mr. Hayes was well loved by all. I loved to hear him on the organ. Everytime he played for the Clydesdales i would always cry bevause the music so matched the team, just like the were prancing for Ernie.

Mr. Hayes, Thank you so much for all the wonderful years of music provided to us and the STL Cardinals. Rest in Peace kind sir. I will never forget being with my sister in law and my brother walking in a short tunnel, leaving "Wrigley" and my brother started verbally thumping to "Here comes the King" and almost everyone joined in and applauded at the end. God bless you and your family. I am sorry for their loss.

Roger I'm sorry to hear about your father. I know how proud of him and how I use to embarrass you when on inspections I would tell the people who your dad was. St. Louis truly lost a legend. If I can help in any way let me know.

Ernie was the last and best of the breed. My first encounter with a ballgame organ player was Gladys Gooding who did the Dodger games in the 40s. I hate the canned music revolution and the screaming and repeated introductions. Ernie was an original but, if I had my druthers, I'd like a clone sometime soon.

Thank you, Mr. Hays for all of your contributions to the summers in St. Louis. You were a true gentleman, a great teacher and a superb entertainer. I will be missing you!
