4 Bases, 3 Strikes, and 15 Amazing Moments from Miracle League

Over the last three months over 30 children with special needs participated in this summer’s Miracle League,. Participants were able to enjoy the thrill of playing baseball just like typically-developing children.

In honor of this season’s Miracle League ending, we would like to present to you a visual story comprised of 15 special moments from Miracle League.

Being a participant of Miracle League is a pretty big thing to be proud of.

It’s not about the trophies-but we won’t deny that we love earning them.

It’s about spending quality time with our best buds (aka: the volunteers),

Like Nicholas and Jodi, who enjoy spending quality time together.

And working hard to be our very best.

As we can see Lila here focusing before swinging her bat.

It’s about keeping our eye on the ball, and knowing when to swing.

Which is exactly what little Leila is doing.

Miracle League is about teamwork and making it from base to base.

See how Maryrose with volunteer Lisa are working together to make it Home?

It’s also about trying to catch the ball,

Reaching out for it like Josh is with volunteer Blake.

Chasing down that ball, no matter how far,

With the same determination that Alex has.

And getting the ball back to the pitcher when it’s time to.

Travis does such a great job delivering the ball to the pitcher.

When it’s in the heat of the game, we still communicate with our buddies.

Just like Connor is with volunteer Hari.

Miracle League is about the pride we have when we become a Home Run Hero.

Look how proud Drew is!

It’s about the instinct we get to run Home because we’re cutting it close.

Watch how fast Jonathan is flying by!

It’s about reaching for the sky to achieve your goals


As Evan goes airborne to reach home plate!

But at the end of the day, the best part of Miracle League is the Friendship!

High-fiver Shoshana and volunteer Sanjana.

But we still really do love getting those medals.

Just like Miracle Medalist Arjun.
