    Austyn Andrachick, front to back, Hunter Palmer, and Trenton Tyree (on Palmer’s shoulders) and other team members wave to cars to invite them to their fundraiser carwash on Tuesday afternoon, June 28, in Whitefish. Ironically the day the community woke up to learn the bleachers at the Sapa-Johnsrud Babe Ruth Fields has been destroyed in a fire the team members were already scheduled to do the fundraiser at the Cenex Zip Trip to help with travel expenses for tournaments.   Babe Ruth President Ray Queen said the field doesn’t have any structural insurance. That means the costs of repairs will have to be met by the league. Fundraisers are still in the discussion phase but there is a GoFundMe page through which the league is trying to raise $30,000. People can donate by visiting: https://www.gofundme.com/sapa-johnsrud(Brenda Ahearn/Daily Inter Lake)
