After buying close to 200 tickets for this year’s Dinner on the Diamond, the local community raised around $12,500 for the Libby Loggers American Legion Baseball team Friday.

Logger Head Coach Kelly Morford said the Loggers cleared over $4,500 after expenses with the auctions and bar.

“A great fundraiser once again!” Morford said by email.
