Doing Good in
Des Moines


One of the favorite things that the Ghost Players are invited to do is to work charity events with young athletes. They were given that chance again on August 15th when they were invited to Des Moines, IA to an event for the Kiwanis Miracle League.

The Des Moines League is part of the national Miracle League which gives challenged athletes the opportunity to play on a baseball team for an entire season. We were very impressed by the kids and the coaches and the fans of these players.

Kolle Family Benefit

It was a beautiful day for baseball at the Jenk Field in Dyersville, IA. The Kolle Family was well-blessed with the number of family, friends, co-workers and supporters who came to celebrate the family, baseball and fun. Funds were raised to meet the family's medical bills. Seven of the Ghost Players played with the kids and then had a home run hitting contest. Thanks for being there guys,especially you Marv for organizing the Ghost Players' participation in it!
