Going off the field, for a change
Depending on how frequently you browse pirates.com during the offseason, you may or may not have seen this story about what former Pirate first baseman Sean Casey is doing in the Pittsburgh community. I wanted to update you on the progress of that Miracle League Field in the South Hills and figured today would be an appropriate time to do so given that the groundbreaking ceremony was held this morning.
Over $1 million was raised for the construction of the field and Pirates Charities has teamed up with Casey to see the project through. Below is a picture of the field, as it looks at the beginning of construction. For more information on the project, you can go to www.caseysclubhouse.org.
