PBA Mourns the Loss of Alumni Robert Hogue

The Prairie Baseball Academy is deeply saddened to hear about the sudden loss of alumni Robert Hogue over the weekend. Rob was a left handed pitcher who came to the program with his twin brother Steve and older brother Ken in 2007-08, and pitched on the 2008 CCBC Championship winning team.

On the afternoon of November 29th Rob was involved in a workplace accident and was rushed to the ICU at the UofA hospital. Rob was placed in a medically induced coma in hopes he could recover from the injuries suffered. Heartbreakingly, Rob was unable to pull through and passed away over the weekend. Robert is survived by his immediate family which includes: his father Rob Sr. (Hogie), mother Carmen, brothers Ken, Steven, and Brandon. Rob had a son named Jaxson who lives in Thunder Bay with his mom. Jodi and Rob were raising Jodi's two girls here in Lethbridge at the time of the accident.


PBA Head Coach, Todd Hubka was in touch with Rob’s brother Steven this morning and had this to say:


“I am incredibly saddened to hear about the loss of Rob Hogue over the weekend. The Hogue boys were the type of kids who would give you the shirt off their back to help someone out.”  


Coach Hubka was informed that Rob’s organs were donated, and between last night, and this morning Rob had already helped save three lives.


“Those were the kind of men the Hogues were, and it makes me happy to think that Rob was still helping others through this terrible tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with Rob’s friends and family during this time, and know that the Prairie Baseball Academy family hurts with you.”


Robert’s family has created a GoFundMe page to help with costs related to his accident and to set up a trust for his young family. The Prairie Baseball Academy is happy to see such an amazing response from Rob’s friends and family. If you would like to check out the page, and/or donate to the family please click here.


Rob’s friends and family have spoken about having a ceremony or celebration in the spring during baseball season, and we will let you know when we have more information.
