Ike Liedorff field survives -- for now

(UPDATED with video) The Ike Liedorff Memorial Field lives on -- for now.

By a vote of the VFW members Wednesday night, they decided open a dialogue between the club, the Lefty Grove League and the Junior Truckers football program.

The fate of Field 3 -- named after the late Ike Liedorff, a longtime league supporter -- was in jeopardy after VFW members voted earlier to tear down the field and replace it with a football field for the Junior Truckers.

The Junior Truckers, a program for fifth- and sixth-graders, are not affiliated with the school system.

Lefty Grove League players were out carrying signs and chanting in favor of the league, while VFW members met inside. Their voices were heard. At least for the time being.
