Help Wanted: Field of Dreams

I met a ten-year-old baseball player, Pierce Jernigan of Youngsville, at the Bulls game on Saturday. I’ve encountered many promising athletes. Pierce, however, is exceptional! He has spina bifida and plays baseball in a wheelchair.

Currently, he plays on a regular field. The grass outfield and dirt infield are not ideal for Pierce’s wheelchair. His game should improve with your help!

I’m asking you to support the Miracle League of Franklin County. Help them complete their baseball field. The organization is raising money to purchase and install a special playing surface.

The Bulls, our parent company Capitol Broadcasting Co. and Minor League Baseball Charities have made a contribution, but the fund raising campaign still has a ways to go.
