PLYMOUTH (WWJ) – If you build it, they will come. Three years after the dream became a vision and the vision became a plan, and three months after the shovels hit the ground, the Miracle League of Plymouth is ready to welcome players and their families to the field.
On Saturday August 20, the Miracle League of Plymouth will celebrate Opening Day of the special needs ballpark, located at 357 Theodore in Plymouth.
Opening Day will allow the players and their families an opportunity to visit the field and take a lap around the bases. The Detroit Tigers Foundation’s concession stand will be open, serving the baseball staples, along with Miracle League of Plymouth flags.
The Miracle League of Plymouth will support at least two teams for the inaugural season, with the first game to be held on August 27th.
“We are very excited for the Miracle League of Plymouth’s Opening Day,” said Kelly Hermann, mother of one of the players. “Children like Maggie do not get the opportunity to play regular sports, and this field will give her that chance. As a parent I could not ask for a greater gift than to see the beaming smile on her face when she gets to do this. She is so incredibly excited to run the bases, just like her brother.”
The Miracle League of Plymouth will support a fall season and a spring season. For more information, visit www.mlplymouth.org.
