WALLA WALLA - The Walla Walla Valley Select Baseball program, under the direction of fundraising chair Peggy Needham, is taking donations to replace the aging baseball backstop at Garrison Middle School. The backstop was originally installed in 1958. Needham says the current condition of the backstop, including the rusty poles, wires and holes, pose a safety hazard.
The Walla Walla Valley Select Baseball program is seeking $8,500 to pay for materials.
An account has been set up at Banner Bank titled "Garrison Backstop Project" and donations are accepted. Donations are tax deductible. Funds may be mailed to Walla Walla Valley Select Baseball at 129 E. Alder, Suite 201 in Walla Walla, Wash. 99362, FED ID # 27-0387105.
