2016 Season


Our 2016 SPRING SEASON began with opening ceremonies on May 7.  It was so cool–the ZaGaZig Clowns, Cubby Bear, Central Campus ROTC, and the SE Polk Girls Softball Team made opening especially fun!  The whole day was  “some kind of ball”.

We hosted ALL of The Iowa Barnstormers on June 7th.  Not sure who had the most fun–the KML players or the Barnstormers?!

And June 14 was our annual DM Police and Fire Nights.  What great buddies!

And June 25 was our annual DAIRY QUEEN DAY!  Luv those Dilly Bars!


We hosted a special event on Saturday, July 16.  Thirty bikers from The Ability Experience (formerly Push Across America) stopped in Des Moines on their way across the country.  Yes, across the country!  They started on the west coast and will end up on the east coast–and they’ve been doing this for 30 years!  It all started with a college fraternity member who wanted to “give back” once he graduated from college–so he began a group that biked for people with disabilities.

We played ONE GAME at 4:30 PM.  Afterwards, the bikers (all college age) attended the Iowa Cubs game across the street and were introduced to the crowd.  

Fall Season began Saturday, August 27.  August 27 was also PICTURE DAY!  Hope all players will wear their NEW uniforms with pride!  We played through October 8.

INAUGURAL HALLOWEEN PARTY WAS SUCH A HOOT!  Great costumes, fun games, and yummy hot chocolate and hot dogs on a crisp, cool, fall evening.


On September 12, 2016, we hosted the Ankeny Miracle League players for two “all star” pick up games at 6 and 7 PM.  The girls softball team from Southeast Polk HS was our buddies for the evening.   It was a fun evening–even got to play under the lights.  And all players got not only a drink ticket, but a hot dog ticket as well!

And we had wonderful TV coverage of the happenings.
