HULL, Iowa (KTIV) -
Western Christian High School has been awarded a $5,000 matching grant from the Minnesota Twins that will enable Western to renovate the baseball and softball fields at Western. Improvements to the fields include re-seeding of the baseball field that was damaged by the drought of 2012, replacing the baseball field backstop and fencing down the right field line that will enhance spectator security, and installation of warning tracks on the softball and baseball fields. The seeding of the baseball field was done last fall and the new fencing and warning tracks will be installed after the completion of the baseball and softball seasons this summer.

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 non-profit 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, US Bank, Best Buy, Treasure Island, and Delta. Since its inception in 1999, the program has granted more than $3 million to improve nearly 600 Upper Midwest and Southwest Florida ball fields.
