Little Leaguers have all-star worthy digs

Navy volunteers teamed up this week to help the Little League.
They came to the ball fields on Bayshore Drive and rebuilt a dugout that was destroyed by a storm last winter.
Volunteers spent their Tuesday afternoon erecting a new wooden dugout that will be used by the home team in future games.
I called together the troops and they came down so we could get this done, said Aaron Fletcher, who is an ensign with the Naval Ocean Processing Facility at the base. He also has a son who playa on a Little League team.
An early February windstorm toppled the dugout and debris from it still lies next to the ballfield.
Fletcher said competing teams tried to use one dugout for the first game of the season and then the Tuesday game was cancelled because of the dugout.
The new dugout will allow all the remaining games to be played as usual.
Ken Tyler, president of the North Whidbey Little League, was appreciative of the volunteers.
The only way we could get any of this work done is with volunteers, Tyler said.
