Baseball supporters in Winner are trying to save night games at a field named for legendary Notre Dame football coach Frank Leahy, who grew up in the South Dakota town.
The Leahy Bowl sits at the bottom of a hill, with bleachers built into the hillsides. One of its eight 80-foot light towers blew down during a recent storm. The city doesn't have the money to fix the tower and has suspended games.
It will cost $140,000 to replace the blown-down tower and strengthen the others. The Winner Baseball Association is donating $5,000 and trying to raise another $50,000 before Monday's City Council meeting.
Leahy coached Notre Dame in the 1940s and 1950s, and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1970.
