New Orleans – The Brother Martin baseball and the football teams will host their annual Crusaders’ Miracle League Weekend on Saturday, May 18, 2019, on E. A. Farley Field (on campus) starting at 8 a.m.

The schedule of events will include a baseball clinic for players from the Miracle League and a split-squad game on Farley Field featuring Brother Martin’s baseball/football teams and all-stars from the Miracle League.
