I will always remember the first time I attended a Miracle League baseball game—I was honored to have the opportunity to throw out the first pitch. I didn’t expect the impact those smiling, extraordinary kids would have on me. The mission of the Miracle League: “Every child deserves a chance to play baseball” is exactly what it accomplishes. The mission and goals of the Miracle League align with my own personal goals of assisting disabled kids. The Miracle League puts smiles on children’s faces and allows them to enjoy a part of life that most Americans take for granted. Those are qualities that I strive to achieve in my daily life, and I can feel these kids teaching me, life’s lessons about accepting life’s challenges with dignity and courage and most importantly……..remembering to never give up.
