Sign up now for Miracle League Spring Season; Volunteers and Buddies also needed

Sign  up  now  for  the  Miracle  League  of  San  Diego’s  spring   season.  The  registration  deadline  for  players  and  buddies  is  Jan.  31.  The  new  season   begins  March  9,  and  games  will  be  played  at  Engel  Family  Field  at  San  Dieguito  Park  and   Green  Field  at  Coronado  High  School  every  Saturday  until  May  19,  2013.

It  is  now  even  easier  to  sign  up  with  the  Miracle  League  of  San  Diego’s  new  redesigned   website  at  miracleleagueofsandiego.org.    Player  registration  for  the  season  is  $75,  but  scholarships  are  available  for  any  player  who  needs  assistance.

Buddies  and  volunteers  are  also  needed  for  the  new  season. Every  player  is  matched   with  a  buddy  for  the  entire  season  and  each  buddy  is  paired  with  the  player  based  on  his  or  her   unique  needs.  Game  day  volunteers  run  the  snack  shack,  grill,  and  umpire  positions.

“Volunteering  at  the  Miracle  League  of  San  Diego  is  a  fun  way  to  earn  community   service  hours  in  a  rewarding  environment.  We  are  extremely  proud  of  the  bonds  formed   between  our  buddies  and  players,”  says  Dan  Engel,  co–president  and  co–founder  of  the  Miracle   League  of  San  Diego.  “Many  of  our  buddies  have  been  inspired  to  learn  sign  language  or  choose   special  education  as  their  college  curriculum  as  a  result  of  their  involvement  in  our  program.”

The  Miracle  League  of  San  Diego  provides  children  with  special  needs  the  opportunity   to  play  baseball  in  an  organized  league  at  two  locations  in  San  Diego  County:  Engel  Family  Field,   a  Little  Padres  Park  in  San  Dieguito  Park,  Del  Mar  and  Green  Field  at  Coronado  High  School  in   Coronado.   Its mission  is  to  ensure  that  every  participant  walks  away  saying  they  had  a  great   day!
