Summertime and Inner City Baseball
Thanks to the work of Janet Morrison and her team, Central Dallas Ministries, in partnership with the Little Heroes baseball program, saw a good number of children from our summer and after-school programs play ball again this year!
There is just something about baseball that brings people together, develops social skills and strengthens an experience of community.
These players, 10 to 12-years-old, live in East and South Dallas in public housing developments where we work every day.
They had a great summer together!
We are grateful for the Little Heroes baseball program.
If you haven't been to the Little Heroes ballpark near Downtown, you need to go by and have a look. It is a wonderful community asset.
We are grateful to Todd Wagner and all of the other investors who brought baseball back to the inner city for the young ball players of Dallas!
