  • Little League continues improvements, adds fall ball

    Grant County Little League has just wrapped up its summer season, but that doesn’t mean that work will stop at Grant County Park.
    In fact, things might get a bit busier since the Grant County Little League Board will continue their renovation efforts at the park without having to schedule around games and practices.
    The work began with a three to four year project that included four phases. With a lot of hard work, help from sponsors and local businesses and a little luck, the board was able to complete the project in just nine months.
