DES MOINES – The Iowa Barnstormers are proud to partner with the Kiwanis Miracle League at Principal Park Field once again this season. Barnstormers players and coaches will participate in two Kiwanis Miracle League games this Thursday, May 18.

“I’ve been looking forward to this since the beginning of the season when I first heard about it,” said Head Coach Dixie Wooten. “Some of the players told me that they’ve had a blast out there and just hearing from them and knowing what it’s about I can’t wait. I look forward to playing ball with the kids.”

Thursday, May 18 will be Iowa Barnstormers Night with the Kiwanis Miracle League of Des Moines. With two games scheduled at Principal Park Field, members of the Iowa Barnstormers indoor football team will pair up with players of the Miracle League for a memorable night of baseball.
