Miracle League Sign Up Begins Aug 20

Miracle League of Stanislaus County Fall Signups
By Anthony Arellanes

There is nothing more heartwarming than to see children playing America’s pastime. But for children facing serious physical and mental disabilities, that opportunity isn’t always easy to achieve. Baseball diamonds are not exactly designed for athletes with wheelchairs or crutches in mind. With your help, we can remove these barriers and allows these special athletes to experience the joy of playing baseball.

Miracle League fields remove the obstacles that arise from the natural grass fields used in conventional youth facilities. Miracle League teams play on a custom-designed, rubberized surface field which will accommodate wheelchairs and other assistive devices. In other words, it levels the playing field where children can hit, run and catch – just as they envisioned in their dreams!

“I am so proud to be a father of such an amazing young person,” said local league board President Terry Battcher, whose son is on one of the teams and threw out the ceremonial first pitch. “Today you all become part of another team, a very special team, the Miracle League. Now moms, dads, grandparents and family of special athletes can know you are not alone.”

Please come out and see our program and see how it changes lives.
