The ’s Rolling Twins wheelchair softball teams finally have a new field to call home. Made especially for people in wheelchairs, the Todd Anderson Field in Brooklyn Park is the first of its kind in Minnesota, mimicking a tennis court with flat surfaces and easy-to-round bases.
The Rolling Twins won a $200,000 grant through the Major League Baseball/Pepsi Refresh Project. That funding made a new field possible. .
"For more than 35 years, Courage Center wheelchair softball athletes dreamed of having a home field," Courage Center representatives said on their website. "The field helps demonstrate the community’s commitment to create opportunities for all."
What to expect at the ribbon cutting ceremony:
- Home run derby featuring Minnesota Twins’ mascot TC Bear and members of the adult Rolling Twins team
- Program and ribbon cutting ceremony
- Jr. Rolling Twins softball demonstration
