and civic groups and just about anyone who has the heart to help these kids play, compete and have fun with playing baseball.

While we call them Buddies, many people refer to them as the 'Angels in the Out ield'.

                               These are the goals and commitments of the Miracle League Buddies -

                                    • When a hard hitter is up to bat, Buddies play in front of the Miracle Leaguer
                                    • Allow the Miracle League Player as much freedom as possible to play his / her own
                                      game

                                      in motivating the player and their family
                                    • Become a friend for the Miracle League Player; get to know the player and their family
                                    • Arrive at the ield at least 30 minutes prior to game time
                                    • Be properly dressed, wearing their 'Buddies' shirt

Mission Statement
Provide opportunities for children with disabilities to play Miracle League
baseball, regardless of their abilities

Promote community support and sponsorship of Miracle Leagues

Promote the construction of special facilities, which meet the unique needs of
Miracle League players and their families.

We cannot change or cure the medical issues life has dealt our children with
disabilities. What we can do is provide them with an opportunity to experience
the joy and bene its, which come from playing our national pastime-Baseball!!

The Rules are Simple:

       Every Child bats each Inning
       All base runners are safe
       Every player scores a run before the inning is over (last one up gets a home run)
       Each team and each player wins every game
