Two years ago, some residents of Perham may have pondered why a group of people would come together, raise a quarter million dollars, just to fix up an old baseball stadium. Baseball fans from all around the region found out exactly why this past weekend. From the press box down to field level, Tuffy’s Stadium and Krueger Field provided an excellent venue for watching and participating in the American pastime. Bob Schepper and the grounds crew should be highly commended for having the field and stadium in excellent condition.
