BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. - The Courage Center officially gets it's field of dreams Thursday.
Todd Anderson Field is the first competitive field for wheelchair softball in the state. It will be home to the two teams managed by the Courage Center, the Rolling Twins and the Jr. Rolling Twins. The Courage Center started playing wheelchair softball 35 years ago in a church parking lot.
The field was built thanks to a $200,000 grant through the Pepsi Refresh Project. The Minnesota Twins picked the Courage Center as their charity partner in 2010 and beat out 14 other MLB teams to win the grant.
A ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for Thursday night at Todd Anderson Field. The field is located in Northwoods Park at 7600 107th Avenue North in Brooklyn Park. A home run derby starts at 5:30 p.m. and a ribbon cutting program at 6 p.m.
KARE 11's Bryan Piatt chatted with teammates about their new facility Thursday on KARE 11 Sunrise.
