“There are many reasons to enjoy a game of golf, especially when it benefits local kid’s youth programs,” said Dustin Stone, WRBA board member. “Wood River Baseball is more than just the sport; it teaches the players about being a part of a team, building character and the love for Americas favorite past-time.”
