Baseball Miracles: A Home Run Mission Trip to New Mexico
In late June, AMTS COO Dan Codi and his family traveled to New Mexico to take part in a baseball-themed mission trip.
Working with the Baseball Miracles organization, the Codi family helped support a two-fold project: community service and a baseball clinic for the Albuquerque, N.M. community.
The community service project consisted of helping the local Franciscan Friars of the Renewal clean up the San Juan Diego Friary. The service team also helped build a new fence for the Friars.
The following day, the team held a baseball clinic at St. Pius X High School in Albuquerque. The clinic brought together kids and adults to participate in an uplifting and life-giving experience centered on baseball.
The Mission of Baseball Miracles
Baseball Miracles is a non-profit organization that brings together baseball and community service to benefit domestic and international communities.
In addition to New Mexico, the organization has traveled to other parts of the U.S., plus Canada, Argentina, Kenya, South Africa, Honduras, the Philippines, and Ireland.
Baseball Miracles aims to uplift deserving children in under-served communities through the game of baseball. The end result is helping children learn valuable life lessons, increase their confidence, and interject bright light into their lives — plus the lives of their parents and the local community.
The organization puts God at the center of their work, striving to be the hands and feet carrying out a message of hope and faith to all people. In addition to having an attitude of service, Baseball Miracles focuses on teamwork, enjoyment, and excellence in everything they do.
AMTS is proud of Dan Codi and his family for joining the Baseball Miracles team to support a wonderful cause in New Mexico. We look forward to hearing more about how this mission trip will have a lasting impact on the kids, adults, friars, and local community in Albuquerque.
