Midlothian High School sophomore Jack Barnes attended the 2023 Miracle League All-Star Game in Palm Beach from Nov. 3-5 and won first place in the home run derby. The game was played at the Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium, which is the Miami Marlins spring training field. The Miracle League All-Star weekend attracted players from across the country. Jack hit two out-of-the-park home runs the first time he was at bat. His mom and Midlothian High School staff member, Jennifer Barnes, cheered for Jack to celebrate the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We are #MISDProud of Jack Barnes and his All-Star win.
