Do You Believe in Miracles?

By Arthur Adams The Citizen The dream came true Sunday afternoon with the dedication of McMiracle Field at the American Legion Baseball Complex in Conyers. The dream was made possible by the efforts of the Conyers and Rockdale Rotary Clubs and many others who believed they could make a difference in the lives of disabled children by providing a place for them to enjoy the game of baseball.

There were numerous dignitaries on hand to help commemorate the occasion - including Dean Alford, president of the Rotary Miracle League Fund, Inc.; Paul Messer, president of Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities, Inc.; which gave more than $300,000 to the project; Sandy Chiu, who cut the ribbon opening the new complex; and Ronald McDonald himself.

But, in the end, what mattered was baseball and the fact that hundreds of children who are participants in the Miracle League now have a field of their own.
