HS baseball teams raise $1,500 for Miracle Park in South Bend

For the first time, two South Bend high school baseball teams played a game at Notre Dame's Frank Eck Stadium on Monday night.

And more importantly, it was for a great cause.

Washington defeated Adams 4-2 in 10 innings in the "Miracle Game at Notre Dame", raising more than $1,500 for the construction of a Miracle Park for those with special needs near Blackthorn Golf Club.

Adams assistant baseball coach Sean Stires helped organize the event. His14-year-old special needs child Bailey has been actively involved in Challenger Little League over the years.

"She's batting 1000% over her 8-year challenger career," Stires says with a smile. "She has a blast going out there playing there and all those kids--there are hundreds of kids around Michiana that play Challenger Little League and they could really use a park like this."

"It's tough for kids whether they are in wheelchairs, using walkers or any assisted devices to go out there on a regular baseball field. A synthetic field is something that will serve all of them really well."
