Kids have fun learning national pastime
Odegard Park in Two Harbors comes alive Monday to Wednesday mornings each week during the summer, with kids filling its fields and enjoying the summer sun and playing baseball with the Two Harbors Little League program.
Two Harbors native Will Peterson manages the league and Two Harbors High School student athletes Tori Bott, Brett Olson and Carson Wenger help coach the kids, ages 7-12.
Depending on age and skill level, kids either pitch on a mound brought out to change the fields from a softball field, or one of the coaches pitches.
Mistakes are made, balls are dropped and throws sometimes go wild, but the players are able to learn the national pastime in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
