2004 Precious Homes Mini-Marlins Tee-Ball League kicks off Saturday




MIAMI -- This Saturday, June 12, at Jos? Mart? Park in Miami, children ages 7 and younger will participate in the opening games of the 2004 Precious Homes Mini-Marlins Inner City Tee-ball League, beginning with Opening Ceremonies at 11:30 a.m. Children will have the opportunity to experience tee-ball thanks to a partnership between the Florida Marlins, Precious Homes and the City of Miami.

Miami City Commissioner Joe S?nchez, Florida Marlins Assistant General Manager Mike Hill and Precious Homes' Victor Seijas are scheduled to attend the ceremonies. Marlins Manager of Hispanic Marketing Juan Mart?nez will introduce the tee-ball teams, and Marlins mascot Billy the Marlin will greet children as part of the opening festivities.


The league will last approximately two months, and games will be played on Saturday mornings. The league will consist of six area teams from some of Miami's inner city parks: Athalie Range Park, Jos? Mart? Park, Juan Pablo Duarte Park, Roberto Clemente Park, Williams Park and Armbrister Park. Games will last until two full innings have been completed.


On July 31, all tee-ball participants will be invited to Pro Player Stadium to see the Florida Marlins take on the Montreal Expos. Prior to the game, the Mini-Marlins Inner City Tee-Ball League Champion will be recognized during an on-field ceremony. In August, Juan Pierre will invite the winning team to a night at the ballpark through his Pierre's Pack program. Pierre's Pack is part of Juan Pierre's $25,000 donation to the Florida Marlins Community Foundation. The program hosts a group of children each month at a Marlins game.


Jos? Mart? Park is located at 351 SW 4th Street in Miami. To get to the park, take I-95 to the US-41 / SW 7th Street exit (1B), make a right onto SW 7th Street / FL-90 W / US-41 W, make a right onto SW 5th Avenue, and make a right onto SW 4th Street. The event is open to the media.
