Growth in sporting fields other than baseball is anticipated for the Grand Strand Miracle League over the next year. This is the league that – for the last decade – has been teaching handicapped kids to play baseball. But now it wants more. And plans are thus underway to build a new park near Pepper Geddings Recreation Center in Myrtle Beach, which will house equipment especially for these kids, with a few items for kids without disabilities. In other words, the focus will be on the kids with handicaps, but it will be built in an extremely aesthetically-pleasing way.
Last weekend, a Pig and Pearl barbecue and roast was held as a way of giving thanks for all the support the League has received over the last decade, and to unveil its vision for the coming decade (the park included). The dinner – charged at $75 a head to raise money for the venture – hosted around 100 of the League’s “best friends.” Plans were unveiled on the day and all who saw them agreed it looks like it is going to be a great project, extremely colorful and inviting for all kids.
