Shin-Soo Choo Hosts Baseball Clinic
On November 13, Shin-Soo Choo of the Texas Rangers hosted a baseball clinic for 15 Miracle League kids at Carroll HS. Shin-Soo was joined by Steve Buechele, newly named bench coach for the Rangers, and Tanner Scheppers, Rangers pitcher. With Southlake Carroll baseball players as buddies, the kids received coaching on batting, throwing and fielding.
Shin-Soo, accompanied by his sons, provided each camper with a Rangers backpack, as well as a jersey, autographed baseball and a signed baseball card. It was obvious to all of us who were able to watch the clinic that he and the other Rangers enjoyed their time with the kids; the kids’ smiles and enthusiasm were clear indication of the enjoyment they had.
Thank you Shin-Soo Choo, Tanner Scheppers, Steve Buechele and the Texas Rangers for a tremendous experience for the kids and thanks for your support of the Miracle League. Photos of the event will be posted to the Events page of the Miracle League web site.

Director of Fun
The Miracle League of Southlake will present tremendous opportunities for those who participate, whether as athletes, coaches or buddies, to have a unique experience. In order to support this initiative, we are seeking a volunteer who will serve as our Director of Fun.
This individual will have a great deal of latitude in defining activities to promote a positive experience for the athletes. Among the duties we foresee are (1) coordinating the in-game entertainment including music between innings, (2) scheduling and coordinating the announcers for each game, (3) working with civic groups to schedule activities outside of game day, and (4) coordinating appearances by Stitch, our new mascot (image above).
If you have the passion and creativity to be our Director of Fun, please forward a quick note to Phillip Meyer, Miracle League of Southlake board chairman, with an overview of how you would approach this role. It won’t necessarily be easy but it certainly will be fun! Thank you.
