Iowa International Center Visitors

2014:  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.
