Spokeswoman Brenda Dreyer said Wednesday that family members are reading messages sent to him over social media. The family is asking for privacy, but people can send messages and jokes to him on Facebook and Twitter under his handle ''Coach Don Meyer,'' she said.

Meyer lights up when anyone talks baseball and enjoys watching the wildlife outside his windows at his Aberdeen home, Dreyer said. He is comfortable, she said.

''Coach Meyer's health has been drastically declining over the past several months,'' Meyer's family said in a statement released Tuesday. ''After a three-day stay in the hospital with a feeding tube, he is now at home under hospice care. Coach Meyer is at peace, loved, enjoying his family and getting exceptional care from Avera St. Luke's. As a family, we are so proud of his perseverance, faith and strength.''
