Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Working for the Marlins Foundation I often get to experience some very cool moments… Last Wednesday, I had one that ranks high on my ever-growing list. We, the Marlins Foundation, hosted 30 blind and visually impaired summer students from MIAMI LIGHTHOUSE FOR THE BLIND
for a (first ever!) touching tour of Marlins Park. We gave the students VIP access to the field, Marlins dugout and exposed them to game-used equipment, including bats with pine tar, gloves, a catcher’s mask, a batting helmet, balls and batting gloves.
After the tour, students enjoyed a Marlins victory from one of our Fiesta Suites (which the kids happily refered to as their penthouse)! Miami Marlins President David Samson also stopped by to welcome our special guests.
P.S. A special thanks to all of our Marlins employees who helped make this day possible!!!
