The morning of Saturday, September 10 was perfect for opening day at Landon's Miracle Field.
Our community can witness the magic of a Miracle League of Billings game over the next three Saturdays at 10 a.m. at Landon's Miracle Field at Poly Vista Park.
Landon's mom and President of Landon's Legacy Foundation
, Marcie Smith, fought through happy tears on Saturday to describe what it was like watching the first game.
"I can’t even put it into words. The smiles on these kids’ faces, just to see their parents
get to watch their kids play a sport and just knowing that Landon is looking down on us, the sun is shining, it’s a beautiful, perfect day for them. Nine years and it’s here, and I couldn’t have asked for it to be better. It’s perfect," Smith said.
Billings Parks and Recreation
operates the Miracle League of Billings. Recreation Specialist Dan McKinney described the first game as "fantastic."
"The support from the community was unbelievable. I think the kids and the participants and the athletes and the buddies did a great job. They had a lot of fun and that’s what it was about. Great day, great weather, and I’m just so grateful for this opportunity in this field to be here," McKinney said.
