Community Involvement

“Certainly anyone who comes to Elkhart County for a game will want to come back time and time again.  Multiple promotional nights, an attached 36,000 square foot retail complex surrounding the stadium featuring shops and dining, and superb baseball provide an unparalleled family experience.” 

While Wallin didn't move to Elkhart until 1978, his wife hasn't lived anywhere else.  “Elkhart certainly has had its share of national attention as a result of the downturn and unemployment, but we're a resilient people who share a deep trust in God, believe in hard work, and persevere,” Wallin added.
