The Brother Martin baseball team will host their annual Crusaders’ Miracle Weekend on Saturday, May 20, 2017. This won’t be an ordinary weekend, but an ‘All-Star Weekend’ for participants to play baseball with their friends. Schedule of events will include a baseball clinic for players from the Miracle League and a split squad game on E.A. Farley Field on Brother Martin’s campus featuring Brother Martin’s baseball team and all-stars from the Miracle League.
These games are designed to give disabled youth an opportunity to compete alongside high school players and learn different aspects of the game. Guests will also have the opportunity to bid on auction items in a silent auction, all for a great cause! All proceeds benefit The Miracle League of Greater New Orleans.
