This weekend’s Giggin for a miracle tournament, a part of The Frog Giggin Tournament Series by Riverbank Products, was a huge success.
In all, 38 Frog Gigging teams participated in the event which benefited the Miracle League of Jonesboro and several hundred people came to watch the event and and enjoy a catfish dinner. When the last frog was weighed and the results tallied, The Frog Giggin Tournament Series by Riverbank products had raised approximately $4,500 for the Miracle league Project.
Miracle League Softball Coordinator, Sharon Turman said she’s watched special needs children watch their siblings play ball and not be able to participate. But, that will soon change. “This will give every child an opportunity, no matter what their special need is to get out and play the sport of baseball,” Turman said. A 2015 Tournament is in the works.
