President Barack Obama threw out the first pitch at the 2009 MLB All Star Game to celebrate the All-Star week’s central theme of community service. Magical Builders partnered with Major League Baseball on two of the key volunteer projects during the All-Star week.
Specifically, Magical Builders partnered with Major League Baseball and the St. Louis Cardinals to refurbish and “green-up” the Herbert Hoover Boys & Girls Club (Sportsmen’s Park Unit) and the St. Louis Department of Parks Recreation & Forestry Youth Center (12th & Park Roller and Recreation Facility). Hundreds of volunteers participated in the overhaul and beautification of these locations and provided a lasting legacy for the thousands of children who are served by the facilities.
