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.
After careful thought and consideration, the 2020 summer Midway Baseball program of the Dunning Boosters has been cancelled. While we sincerely hoped that conditions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic would have been different by this time, player health and safety, an uncertain timeline, family and league considerations, and alignment with St. Paul Parks and Recreation youth programming have led us to make this difficult decision to cancel. We are considering options to offer a fall baseball league if restrictions are lifted and it is safe to resume full baseball activities.
Please consider supporting our sponsors, a number of whom are small neighborhood businesses, as they too have been challenged during these difficult times. You can find a listing of our sponsors using the "Sponsors" tab above.
Thank you for your continued support of our league, and we hope you and your family continue to stay safe.
