May 2017 Events
May 2     The Miracle League

Mark Scheier and Jeremy Wonders, Miracle League Board members and community outreach partners, will present their passion for this agency and its work and how announcing two games each Saturday morning is "by far the most fun" of all they do with The Miracle League.


The Miracle League removes the barriers that keep children with disabilities experience the joy of America's favorite pastime.  Miracle League teams on custom-designed, rubberized turf fields that accommodate wheelchairs and other assistive devices while helping to prevent injuries.  And, it’s more than playing a game. The Miracle League is about making new friends, building self-esteem, and being treated just like other athletes. 


To help the athletes, the Miracle League uses a “buddy” system – pairing each player with an able-bodied peer.  The result is a bond that cannot be described. The Miracle League serves children and adults who suffer from any physical or mental disabilities, which causes them to be excluded, whether intentionally or not, from conventional Baseball leagues.?


Our players may not be able to run the bases or hit the ball as well as some of their peers, but they have an equal amount of love and determination to play baseball.  The Miracle League wants to help them achieve that dream.?
