HELENA – The fall season isn’t just for football, and those wishing to play, coach or volunteer for Helena Miracle League baseball will have an opportunity to do so on four upcoming dates this October and November.

Fall ball will kick off this Saturday, Oct. 19, and representatives with the Helena Miracle League are searching for players, coaches and volunteers for the games that will be played at Joe Tucker Park in Helena.

In addition to Oct. 19, baseball games will be played on Saturday, Oct. 26, Saturday, Nov. 2 and Saturday, Nov. 9 between 9-11 a.m. each date.
