“The team at the Federacion de Beisbol has been fantastic to work with,” Baseball Miracles Founder John Tumminia, a parishioner at St. Mary’s in Marlboro and a longtime scout for the Chicago White Sox, said in a press release. “Their dedication to a successful visit from our team has made our passion and excitement for this trip grow more and more each day. The children in the community will undoubtedly have the support they need once we leave to continue their exploration of baseball.”

Baseball Miracles has been collecting baseball equipment from all regions of the country over the past year for this trip. Each child at the clinic will receive a glove and baseball.
