You couldn’t have asked for a better Opening Day for the Miracle League of Southlake: blue skies, smiling faces and happy kids ready to play ball. The inaugural game on September 26, 2015, at Bicentennial Park’s Miracle League Field was truly a day to remember.

The event began with a grand-opening ceremony at 9 a.m. followed by the first official games at 10 a.m. The fields were abuzz with proud parents, volunteers and community members cheering on the players.

It’s been a long journey to Opening Day. The idea of Miracle League of Southlake began in 2007 when Phillip Meyer, the League’s president, contacted the program’s national leadership about bringing the organization to Southlake.

Meyer, along with Southlake resident Mike Mills, contacted John Slocum, a member of the Southlake Parks Development Corporation, who was quick to join as a volunteer and city liaison/parks board chairman.

From there, volunteers and support flowed in. The Texas Rangers Foundation, the City of Southlake and the Miracle League of Southlake have formed a tremendous bond and partnership – all for the benefit of some incredibly special children.

Southlake Style was there for the inaugural game, and it warmed our hearts to see the players in action and to be part of a historical day for our city. Click through our album to see some of our favorite shots from Opening Day.
