Take Me Out To The Ball Game

We had a fantastic day.  Today was Josh’s spring training for his new baseball team the Bulls.  He did great.  He threw the baseball several times.  I have never seen him throw a ball.  He normally has no interest.

He danced  his way across home plate.

 Children with special needs don’t usually have the opportunity to be involved in extra curricular activities, but thanks to organizations like the Miracle League of the Triangle these kiddos have an opportunity to be involved in their community and have some fun.

On September 16,2004 the Miracle League of the Triangle had its first game.  That first season included over 100 “special” athletes and more than 200 community volunteers.  Over the next 6 years the Miracle League of the Triangle has grown to more than 300 athletes and they actually have a waiting list for the volunteers.

The Miracle League of the Triangle is a non-profit organization and rely solely on donations. If you want to find out how you can help please check out their website. http://miracleleagueofthetriangle.com/default.aspx

Organizations like the Miracle League provide children with special needs an outlet and a place in their community.  They also provide the families with a support system and the chance to see our kids do “regular” things.  I encourage you to find an organization like this in your community and see how you can help.  Believe me once you enter this amazing “special” world you will never see things the same again.  It is wonderful.
