Wade Stadium has been decaying for years and has become an old structure needing a face lift. Tonight a section of the statdium along the first base line collapsed and fell.

The neighbors said there was a loud boom and crash, and the alley leading to the area is blocked off. Duluth will begin clean up efforts on Thursday.

According to Dan Hanger of Fox 21 News,  Sen. Roger Reinert, DFL-Duluth,  has a bill he’s trying to get passed through the Senate that would give the City of Duluth $4 million in funding to help fix the decaying stadium. “First of all, it’s really shocking news to hear, and I am so thankful it happened at a time when people weren’t there and no one was hurt,” said Sen. Roger Reinert, DFL-Duluth.

Wade stadium has been the home of the Duluth Huskies baseball team as well as hosting many outdoor concerts and high school baseball games.
