Iowa International Center Visitors

May 25 was an extra special evening as we hosted eight international visitors from the United Arab Republic.  These visitors were touring in the US and had a 3-day stop in Des Moines.  Since they don’t have anything like a Miracle League in their countries, we were a special place for them.  And we showed them how much fun playing in the KML is, with each of them playing right along with us!  Nearly 150 visitors enjoyed a picnic and two games.  Many thanks to all who made the evening such a success:

  • The Iowa Premier Chevy Dealers and Shottenkirk Chevrolet for organizing and underwriting the picnic;
  • To Hy-Vee for working with the Dealers in preparing the food and grilling on-site;
  • To the girls of the SE Polk HS softball team for being our buddies;
  • To all of the KML board and committee members for organizing and staffing that evening;
  • To our PA Guy, Al, for doing all of the game time announcing and Cubs Coach Kevin and Brewers Coach Will for coaching the teams; and
  • To Mother Nature for giving us a beautiful evening for our outdoor event!

It was a magical evening and one that is sure to be long-remembered by our international visitors.
