Recently, we lost one of our most precious players. Eric McGovern was one of our original players from day one as has the entire McGovern family and children. Eric was so much fun as he challenged Mr. Dan to fire fast balls to him every time he came to the plate and yes, he never failed to hit them. Eric was loved by all of us who had the privilege to know him. He was a big Yankee fan and was a member of the Lehigh Valley Yankee Fan Club led by our board member and President of the club, Chuck Frantz, and often went on trips to Yankee Stadium. Of course, he played on the Yankees at the Miracle League coached by Chuck Frantz. We will miss him dearly. Condolences to the McGovern Family from the entire Miracle League of Northampton County family.
The New York Yankees Fan Club of the Lehigh Valley hit a grand slam home run with their production of the wonderful MLNC Trunk or Treat event at the Charles Chrin Community Center of Palmer Township on Saturday, October 24, 2020. For many years they have produced trick or treat nights at the Miracle League Field but this year with the continuing COVID-19 pandemic things had to change and the Fan Club rose to the occasion. Many thanks go out to Shelly Anderson and her team for all the work they put into planning and pulling off the event. The great success was shown in the smiles on the faces of our many players and families which drove through the line of 32 organizations that handed out treats.
