State Farm and the Miami Marlins will be recognizing Ken Fairman, executive board member of the Miracle League of Miami Dade, for his involvement in establishing a Miracle League in the community. The ceremony will be at Marlins Park on Saturday, Sept. 1, before the Miami Marlins play the New York Mets.
Fairman is the outgoing president of the Howard Palmetto Baseball Softball Association (HPBSA) and manager of the Marlins in the (13U) Midget division. His recognition comes from his leadership and foresight as HPBSA president that helped Howard Palmetto’s Miracle League of Miami Dade receive its initial funding to begin the Miami-Dade chapter. He initiated funding for the Miracle League of Miami- Dade to build the first specialized baseball field in the county for special needs children.
The Miracle League of Miami Dade creates positive life experiences through baseball that allow children with disabilities to safely play baseball on a universally accessible, completely flat, rubberized field. Let’s help those in wheelchairs and the visually impaired fully participate in America’s favorite pastime
Join the Miracle League and the Miami Marlins to raise money at the park with a 50/50 Raffle and a Marlins silent auction. Be a volunteer or simply attend a fun evening at the park for a great cause.
