Fort Myers Miracle is donating $15,000 to sponsor 21 youth baseball and softball organizations across Southwest Florida.
The sponsorships will help area leagues pay for much-needed equipment, supplies, and operational costs.
In Southwest Florida, the spring season for Little League and Cal Ripken seasons began in January and runs through May, with all-star teams forming at season’s end. Some leagues also offer fall ball.
In addition to Little League and Cal Ripken sponsorships and frequent community appearances by players and staff, the Miracle offers a variety of youth-oriented programs at the ballpark.
The Achieva Credit Union Baseball Buddies program recognizes youth teams by allowing children to stand side-by-side with Miracle players during the National Anthem.
On Family Sundays, children can play catch on the field before the game and run the bases after the game.
At select home games, children can receive free tickets by showing their report cards or coming dressed in their team uniform.
