It was an incredible day today at Fern Creek Park as we opened the field and played the first games in the Miracle League of Louisville. Six great Miracle League teams filled with players ages 5 to 56 took the field and played baseball for the first time. It was an awesome, rewarding experience and we appreciate all of you that were able to join us.
Special thanks to all of the coaches, volunteers, supporters of the project and members of the BIA who contributed to the construction of this incredible project. We couldn’t have done it without you!
