The City of Southlake, Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation and Miracle League of Southlake are coming together on Wednesday, May 1st to celebrate the Bicentennial Park and Texas Rangers Miracle League Field Groundbreaking. The event will take place from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at Bicentennial Park and is open to the public.
Bicentennial Park is Southlake’s premiere park facility, and is comprised of the first land assembled for park purposes in the city. Improvements will include a new playground, Texas Rangers Miracle League Baseball Field, new concession/restroom facility, enhancement to the original baseball 4-plex, park boulevard connection to White Chapel Blvd., new Park Maintenance Facility, parking, trails, enhanced landscape and irrigation improvements including an additional new water well.
Over the past six months, City staff has been working with Miracle League of Southlake and Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation on an agreement for a one lump-sum donation of $100,000 for naming rights to the field for 10 years. With this donation, the Miracle Field at Bicentennial Park is named “Texas Rangers Miracle League Field.”
Director of Community Services for the City of Southlake, Chris Tribble, states “The Texas Rangers Miracle League Field has been a very special project to the City of Southlake. The addition of a Miracle League field at Bicentennial Park, offers children, young adults, and adults alike with special needs the opportunity to play the game of baseball. We appreciate the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation and the Miracle League of Southlake Organization for their support in this project.”
