Opening Night At Miracle Field

Posted: Updated:
(WLNS) - Opening night at Miracle Field in Lansing... For the 3rd year, the MSU players teamed up with more than 50 baseball buddies with special needs.

This event allows many children and adults their first opportunity to play sports, and the smiles among players, fans, and families are priceless.

That includes Zoe, who despite having no arms, can swing with the best of them... How cool is that??? Nice going, Zoe!!!

aAter suffering thru a miserable weekend sweep at Illinois this put things in perspective.

Blaise Salter, MSU infielder, said, "For the 3rd year in a row, I have a buddy, he's in the 2nd game, his name is Logan. He's been here for 3 years and my first year here, he kinda stood out to me because he's like similar stature to me, he's a taller guy, and we've clicked throughout the years, we keep in touch."

Spartan head coach Jake Boss, Jr. said, "They enjoy themselves just as much as their buddies I think enjoy their time out here. It's fun for our guys to really appreciate the benefit of giving back and selfishly, this probably comes at the right time for us based on how last weekend went, but just a fun night, always has been a fun night, and a real privilege for us to be out here."
