Midway Baseball is a nonprofit program of the Dunning Boosters and was founded in 1990 by local resident Jim Kelley. Our fields are located in St. Paul's Dunning park, on Marshall Avenue at Syndicate street, next to Concordia University.
Dunning fields have a great baseball tradition and were home to MLB legends Paul Molitor and Dave Winfield and current MN Twin Joe Mauer. These Hall-of-Famers (Molitor & Winfield) were coached and mentored by Billy Peterson. We are fortunate that Billy continues to play an important roll in our program.
