Baseball supporters in Winner have raised enough money to save the light towers at a field named for legendary Notre Dame football coach Frank Leahy.
Leahy Bowl supporters raised $70,000 over a span of nine days. They needed to raise at least $50,000, or the City Council planned to tear down the light towers because the city where Leahy grew up can't afford upgrades in the wake of a wind storm that blew down one of the field's eight 80-foot light towers.
Winner Baseball Association Treasurer Glen McCready said that the field holds a lot of memories for a lot of people.
Repairs are expected to be complete by June 4. Games are suspended until the work is done.
