Opening Ceremonies Saturday For St. Cloud’s Miracle League Field [AUDIO]
ST. CLOUD - A dream that began over five years ago will become a reality this weekend. The Miracle League of Central Minnesota is hosting the opening ceremonies of their brand new ball field.
President Brad Barz says it has been a labor of love for many community members.
Barz says the Metro Lions Club was also instrumental in getting the project completed. He says a lot of individuals also helped make the field a reality, including the late Harmon Killebrew, when he was in town a few years ago.
The Miracle League field is located at St. Cloud's Whitney Park. Saturday's events include an opening ceremony at 11:30 a.m., followed by two exhibition games. Al Newman from the Minnesota Twins organization will also be on hand.
The Miracle League field will allow children with mental and/or physical challenges the opportunity to play ball and be a part of a team.
The Miracle League plans to play games twice a week on the field.
