Field makes dreams come true

By Arthur Adams The Citizen

The Rotary Clubs of Conyers and Rockdale had the foresight to yell, "Play Ball," and two years later the miracle happened. After raising more than $700,000, the special baseball complex, designed exclusively for children with disabilities, has become a reality.

Opening ceremonies were held Sunday afternoon at McMiracle Field in Conyers. The first-of-its-kind sports complex came to life as youngsters stepped up to the plate and circled the bases, most for the first time in their lives. No one kept score during the three games that were played Sunday, but you'd have never known it from listening to the cheers from the hundreds of enthusiastic fans in the stands.
