The ground breaking ceremony of the new Miracle League Ball Field at the Shucks Road Ball complex at 301 Shucks Road in Harford County was one of those days where the sun shines a little brighter, the smiles are bigger and you know something truly special is happening. The Walls family is the motivating force behind the creation of this field for children with disabilities, raising over $650,000 over the last two years. Harford County stepped in to provide the land for the new ball field at the Shucks Road Ball Complex.
Many organizations contributed generously to this project including, The Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation, APGFCU, Harford County Government, Freedom Federal Credit Union, Kelly and Assoc., Plaza Ford, Jones Junction and SR&B Advertising, among many others.
My first internship as a young speech/language pathologist was at John Archer School in Harford County. Now, many years later, I was thrilled to see the John Archer School Choir sing a rousing rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ball Park!”. I can’t wait to see the kids round the bases hopefully sometime next spring!
MidAtlantic Photographic LLC plans to aerially photograph the ball field as work progresses so stayed tuned!
