The players were very pleased as the umpires interacted with them during their games. Click here to view pictures of the day. We thank these gentlemen for visiting our baseball facility.

On a warm April 14th evening the two Miracle Leagues in the Lehigh Valley came together to enjoy a baseball game at the IronPigs. Before the IronPigs took the field a group of players from each Miracle League played a game with IronPigs and Rochester players acting as Buddies on the field. As in the past years, everyone had a great time. We thank the IronPigs for the opportunity show off our player’s skills. Below are a few pictures of the event.
