It takes a village to conceive, develop, and run an organization like ours. We first extend our thanks to Mark Rantala, Executive Director at Lake County Ohio Port and Economic Development Authority.


Mark sketched out the concept for The Miracle League of Lake County on a piece of paper and approached Dennis Morley, Mayor/Safety Director of the City of Eastlake. The rest is history, thanks to a lot of hard work from a lot of people who made this dream a reality.
