The Miracle League of San Diego hosted its 15th Opening Day on March 8 at Engel Family Field, a Little Padres Park, at San Dieguito Park. The league celebrated its largest season yet with teams from both the North County and South Bay, which included 215 players and over 300 team volunteers. The day ran smoothly thanks to the local San Dieguito chapter of National Charity League, which provided mother and daughter volunteers. Also, a big thank you to Jersey Mike’s Solana Beach for providing 500 free subs for players, buddies, volunteers and coaches.

During the Opening Day ceremony, the Miracle League of San Diego had a special surprise for Dan Engel, co-founder and former president. Engel was presented with a Proclamation from County Supervisors Dave Roberts and Bill Horn declaring March 8  as “Dan Engel Day” throughout the County of San Diego.

“The County of San Diego is committed to recognizing and honoring those individuals who are dedicated to the best ideals of public service and Dan Engel is one such worthy individual, “ said Roberts’ Chief of Staff John Weil. The proclamation symbolizes the 10 years of hard work, dedication, and continued support Engel has provided for the families of the Miracle League of San Diego.

The Miracle League of San Diego allows children and adults with special needs the opportunity to play baseball in an organized league in two locations in San Diego County. For more information about Miracle League of San Diego, visit miracleleagueofsandiego.org
