Milan Miracle Celebration

This past Saturday, a celebration recognizing the 1954 “Milan Miracle” was held in Milan. More than 1,000 people attended including Governor Eric Holcomb, Former Governor Mitch Daniels, and Angelo Pizzo (Screenwriter for the movie Hoosiers). Emcee Greg Rakestraw hosted a round-table discussion with the Milan players present-Ray Craft, Bobby Plump, Rollin Cutter, Roger Schroder, and Gene White. Following the ceremony, a number of attendees paid a visit to the museum. For those present, thank you very much for attending the 70th Anniversary of the Milan Miracle!  The Milan players felt truly honored and again, we are grateful for your presence. This past week, Senator Todd Young also paid homage to the team on the floor of the Senate.
