“Make Things Right,” Oklahoma Little League Asks Walmart To Rebuild Lost Field
LUTHER, Okla. (KFOR) — Their field was destroyed making way for a new Walmart, now an Oklahoma little league is calling on Walmart to foot the bill.
The Luther Walmart is closing, less than a year after opening.
It’s the off-season for the Luther Lions, but now the little lions are without a den.
Instead, they’re renting the big Lion’s lair, Luther School’s Wilson Field, after their own field was stripped away to make room for a new Walmart.
Julie Moore is a longtime Luther resident, and a proud football mom.
“They work hard, and they love football,’ she exclaimed. “Everybody’s really frustrated.”
