But the work isn’t finished.

 In Saturday’s May the Fourth Star Wars-themed game against the Charleston Riverdogs, the GreenJackets will be sporting one-of-a-kind Star Wars’ jerseys that will be auctioned off during the game to benefit the North Augusta Miracle League Campaign, the release said.

May 4 will be the official kickoff of the Miracle Maker Campaign.  

The RECing Crew is in search of 100 Miracle Makers to donate $1,000. The donation will help finish Phase I while also supporting Phase II which includes a pavilion, batting cage, scoreboards and shades. 

“Let’s play ball,” RECing Crew President Pam Stickler said in the news release.  “There is no better time than now to support this campaign to hit a homerun.”

The North Augusta Miracle League Field is a dream brought about by local disability advocate and recreation group, The RECing Crew, along with the City of North Augusta Parks, Recreation & Tourism.  Miracle Fields are inclusive and universally-accessible, allowing for athletes with disabilities to play and enjoy the experience without any obstacles or injuries, the release said.

The entire project will cost an estimated $1.8 million.

Not only will RECing Crew members play on the field, but it will be open to other groups with a similar mission to support those with disabilities.
