Minnesota Twins Donate 10K

The Minnesota Twins have donated ten thousand dollars to assist with the upgrades OAA and the City of Oakdale are making to Bearth Field (Tanners).  Significant updates to the field are planned throughout the season.  OAA and the City of Oakdale are already working to get estimates for the initial safety enhancements.   The exact timing of upgrades will be dependent on what type of season we are able to have this year.

Thanks to the Minnesota Twins for their generous donation!
