Ken Dudzik, chairman of the Monett United Fund, recently presented a check for $1,800 to Kirk Verhoff, president of the Monett Youth Baseball and Softball League to benefit the program.

Over the course of four years, the group has rebuilt dugouts in five of the ball fields at Monett's North Park. The program allows about 400 youth the opportunity to participate on one of 35 teams that play in the area. Games should be getting underway the first week of May in Monett.

Local youth will challenge teams from Cassville Sarcoxie, Mt. Vernon and Aurora.
