We are grateful to all the House Managers and staff members who serve as team buddies, helping to make each game a special night out for the participants.
About the game...
Games last approximately one hour with each team playing two innings. The National Anthem is sung before each game. Between the two innings participants, coaches, buddies and fans sing Take Me Out to the Ballgame. Each team member takes a turn at bat and circles the bases. Staff members, volunteers and fans cheer on the players as they come up to bat and assist them in the outfield, as needed. All games end in a tie. The teams are playing ball every Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday (6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.) now through June 29. We hope to see more fans in the stands! The Pirates Charities Miracle League Field is located in Cranberry Township, PA at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Sportsplex at Graham Park (260 Graham Park Drive, Cranberry Township, PA 16066). Come out to cheer on our teams!
