    A crowd gathered prior to the May 18 Mound Westonka High School baseball game to rededicate Fritz Soule Field. Although the baseball field was originally dedicated in the spring of 1994, just a few months after Fritz Soule died; major improvements to the field provided an opportunity for family and friends to remember him at a rededication ceremony.
