“One way or another, this inaugural week of minor league baseball returning to Elkhart County is going to be one our fans will never forget”, says Miracle founder Craig Wallin. “We hope the entire area comes out to join us in celebrating our new team and its entrance into the Northern League”.
Music is not the only the headliner of the night as the club introduces it’s new menu lineup for the season that fans can begin enjoying at 6pm. “To say we’re stoked about our ballpark food choices and operation would be a huge understatement”, Wallin adds.
