The community is welcome to join the Miracle League of San Diego at Engel Family Field, a Little Padres Park at San Dieguito Park (1628 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, Del Mar) Saturday, March 5, at 10 a.m. for Opening Day.
The Miracle League’s spring season officially starts with team meet and greets at 10 a.m. followed by the Parade of Teams and Opening Day Ceremony at 10:30 a.m. The Opening Day Ceremony will be followed by two games. The Diamondbacks play the Royals at 11:15 a.m. and the White Sox play the Mets at 12:15 p.m. Snooze An A.M. Eatery from Del Mar will provide free food during both games.
The Miracle League of San Diego was created in 2005 so that San Diego children with special needs would have the opportunity to play organized baseball.
“Opening Day for Miracle League is an amazing community event,” said Kenneth Blattenbauer, president of the Miracle League of San Diego. “We have both returning and new buddies, coaches and players along with the Pad Squad, Snooze and volunteers from the National Charity League San Dieguito Chapter - all celebrating the new spring season.”
