Summertime is here and we hope everyone is enjoying it.
This time last year, we had just broken ground on our new Miracle League baseball field that was built at Hoover Sports Park East. We are excited to report that the first spring season of the Over the Mountain Miracle League was a hit. We had more than 70 players participate each weekend with smiles on their faces. We still aren’t sure who had more fun: the players, the coaches or the spectators. The League has had an overwhelming response from people that wanted to volunteer. This just shows you the kind of great people that live in our community. Be sure and check out their website at otmmiracleleague.org for registration information for the fall season.
We had a tremendous success with our SEC Baseball Tournament in May. Over the past 16 years, the top baseball teams from the Western and Eastern divisions have met at the Hoover Met with crowds more than 130,000. This year, even more gathered to watch America’s favorite pastime: baseball! We are looking forward to another great tournament in 2015.
We are very excited that the city of Hoover will be hosting our second Freedom Fest on the Fourth of July at the Hoover Met. This family friendly event will start at 6 p.m. with live entertainment and the evening will close out with a magnificent fireworks show. Don’t forget we have plenty of free parking as well and easy access in and out of The Met. For additional details about the event you can visit our website at hooveralabama.gov or call City Hall at 444-7500.
Hoover has something for all ages. Please don’t hesitate to call our office if we can assist you. Our staff will continue to work hard to exceed your expectations.
