About the Beneficiaries:
The Miracle League of Minnesota is a charitable organization that provides children with mental and/or physical challenges an opportunity to play baseball as a team member in an organized league. There is something special about playing the game of baseball that lights up a kid’s eyes, but for children facing physical and mental challenges, that opportunity can often be a difficult first step. The Miracle League gives these children the opportunity to get out in the sunshine, and enjoy playing the game of baseball in its purest form. www.MiracleLeagueMN.com.
