It’s always fun to see who’s going to walk through Studio 11 Pittsburgh’s doors next. Sometimes, it’s a television actor or opera star. This week, it was former Pirates baseball manager Jim Leyland along with Super Bowl champion and former Pittsburgh Steeler Rocky Bleier.
Leyland, Bleier, and Edgar Snyder were at Studio 11 Pittsburgh to appear in a public service announcement for the Miracle League of Moon Township. Studio 11 Pittsburgh’s corner green screen is where the three famous Pittsburghers converged for the production shoot.
Studio 11 Pittsburgh enjoyed partnering with Edgar Snyder & Associates and Awesome Films to help the Miracle League of Moon Township bring awareness to a baseball field and adaptive playground slated for ground breaking this summer.
“Rocky Bleier’s firm is doing the construction for us. Jim Leyland is the spokesperson for our field now. Edgar Snyder does a lot with charities, and Cindy (Danel), Edgar and the firm helped us be at Studio 11 today,” said Mike Magulick, President of the Miracle League of Moon Township.
Magulick and his wife Christina’s, inspiration for the field came from their son, Luke.
“Our son has a rare genetic condition. After he was diagnosed, we wanted to try to find a way to help other families. The goal is that no matter anyone’s condition, they’ll be able to enjoy the park,” said Magulick.
The Magulicks have another son who does not have special needs. The Magulicks look forward to their sons having an inclusive, safe place to play together and providing that experience to similar families.
“Hopefully, we’ll break ground in July. If we do that, the playground will be open in the fall. Everything is connected and fenced in, making it a family friendly park. We’re hoping to have a baseball league in May of 2019 and add soccer, flag football, golf and yoga in 2019 as well,” said Magulick.
