AREA SOFTBALL: Marshall Area Fastpitch Softball Association receives $7,500 grant from Twins Community Fund
Money will go towards construction of four dugouts at softball complex near high school
MARSHALL — After seeing a lot of upgrades over the past couple of years, the softball fields by Marshall High School will receive another key improvement.
Over the summer, the Marshall Area Fastpitch Softball Association was named a 2019 recipient of a $7,500 grant from the Minnesota Twins Community Fund. The money will be used toward the construction of four dugouts at the softball fields near Marshall High School. In addition to the 40 high school players who use the fields, 95 kids ages 8-18 participate in the summer fastpitch program.
The Twins Community Fund’s “Twins Fields for Kids” program provides financial support to improve baseball and/or softball facilities for youth in the Upper Midwest and Southwest Florida. The program makes matching grants to nonprofit organizations and local government units that operate baseball and/or softball programs.
The Twins Community Fund and its grant programs are supported in part by Target, U.S. Bank, Treasure Island and Delta.
Since its inception in 1999, the program has granted more than $4.3 million to improve nearly 800 Upper Midwest and Southwest Florida ball fields.
