New Belle Prairie complex is ready for youth to play ball
4 Jul 2018
The Belle Prairie Ball Fields are open and it’s time to play ball.
The ball fields, which are part of the 26-acre complex, along with soccer fields, represent a combination of work by the Little Falls School District, the city of Little Falls, the Little Falls Youth Baseball Association and the community, Rusty Gwost, head of the association said.
In 2015, he brought a proposal to the School Board to use nine acres for the fields so Little Falls teams would have a place to play.
With his children in the youth baseball program, he was frustrated to see that the only actual baseball fields to play on were outside of Little Falls and for some kids, that could be a barrier preventing them from joining the program.
