Western Duluth Little League Seeking Support to Update Facilities

The city of Duluth stepped up with a commitment to match up to $100,000 in donations

DULUTH, Minn. – The Western Duluth Little League needs to improve its facilities, but they also need money for the project.

The city stepped up with a commitment to match up to $100,000 in donations.

Representatives from the league say their facilities are unsafe and difficult to maintain.

“Things that not only need to be done, need to be replaced, but simply upgraded because a lot of the field, the fencing, things like the dugouts have been there since the 1980s,” said Corey Verhel, vice president of the Western Duluth Little League.

Tomorrow morning, the little league hosts a pancake breakfast from 8 to 11 a.m. at the West Duluth American Legion to raise money.

Among the projects the league says are needed include paved walkways, new fences, and general field improvements.
