Student wants grant for new baseball field

Posted by wlpo on February 20, 2010

A local teen needs your help in getting his hometown a new baseball field.

          Leland High School student Darren Riskedal is a finalist for a $50,000 community service grant thru Pepsi.  As of today, Darren is the leading vote-getter for the grant.

          Riskedal says he wants the new field because he’s used it his whole life.  He’s also using the new field as an Eagle Scout project.

          If he gets the grant, Riskedal will make an entirely new field.

           To vote for Riskedal’s project, go to  Click on the link to $50,000 grants for his project.  Voting ends February 28th.
