In an effort to give back to the communities that support its US manufacturing headquarters, Väderstad has committed $200,000 of community investment into the sister cities of Wahpeton, ND and Breckenridge, MN.
The majority of these funds will go to the Wahpeton Baseball Association’s facility, which will include naming rights to the stadium around John Randall Field for the next ten years. The name for this facility moving forward will be “Väderstad Stadium at John Randall Field.”
