Uniform Unveiling Event – April 28

Miracle League of Southlake was thrilled to host our uniform unveiling on April 28 at the Southlake Hilton; thank you, Southlake Style, for the wonderful article.  Hosted by the Southlake Hilton and emceed by Scott Murray, the event was a tremendous kickoff for us to show the community the progress that has been made in building the program.  We were honored to be joined by Elvis Andrus, Rangers shortstop, and Steve Buechele, Rangers bench coach, as we celebrated those young athletes who will participate in our league.  The excitement on their faces and in the eyes of these young people was truly heartwarming.

We were also honored to be joined by representatives from the City of Southlake, Carroll ISD and surrounding school districts.  This event was a great opportunity for Southlake and surrounding communities to witness firsthand our efforts in building a model Miracle League program.  Special thanks to the Texas Rangers Foundation (Karin Morris), Jim Sundberg, Rangers players and alumni, Scott Murray and Mike Hutchison (Southlake Hilton) for making this a special event.

Opening Day is less than five months away; it’s almost time to Play Ball!  On behalf of the board, thanks to everyone for your support of the Miracle League of Southlake.
