Pirates Charities will help build the first Miracle Field in the Wheeling, W.Va., area. The formal announcement will come Wednesday morning, during the Pirates Caravan’s stop in Wheeling. The field will enable children with special needs to play baseball in a league-based environment.
In 2008, Pirates Charities donated $200,000 toward construction of a Miracle Field in Cranberry Township. The field hosted its first games last May.
