Bearth Field Upgrades, there is a new page on the OAA website dedicated to our progress on the field upgrades. Check out the details at the link below.
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!

The Minnesota Twins have donated 3 equipment kits to OAA Traveling Baseball. We applied for this grant back and January and just recently got the good news.
Kits include new gloves, helmets, bats baseball, catchers gear and a gear bag. We will be working with the Twins on how this will be distributed based on when play resumes.
A big thanks goes out to the Minnesota Twins!
