On June 26, Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau and Nita Killebrew, wife of the late Twins Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew, were onsite with various members of the community to help celebrate the grand opening of Harmon Killebrew Field, a new ballpark for the South Metro Miracle League for special-needs children. Representatives from Uponor, a Grand Slam Sponsor of the ballpark, along with their families, also participated in the event.

The Harmon Killebrew ballpark, located in Lakeville’s King Park on Dodd Boulevard, is a barrier-free, handicapped- and wheelchair-accessible baseball and softball field designed with a cushioned, rubberized playing surface especially for special-needs children. The new ballpark, which has been four years in the making, broke ground last September.
