In the small town of Athens, Minn., Russ Mann decided the Little League programs needed a nicer field to play on.
His dream became a “Fields of Dreams,” and has made quite a difference for the spirit of a community. A cell tower provided Athens with a $36,000 piece in seed money for the baseball field. But with more funds needed, Mann and his associates started getting creative, tapping into a momentum that became contagious in the town. The buzz for a baseball field was on.
