So What Can I Do?
Miracle League was proud to host our uniform unveiling event at the Southlake Hilton on April 28. With Opening Day a mere three months away, it’s now time to gear up for our inaugural season. Of course, we need to have players, but it’s also critical that we have volunteers to help us through the first season. Whether you are interested in coaching, being a buddy, or other volunteer positions such as team mother, announcers, etc., we need you!
Anticipating an Opening Day registration of up to 100 players, we are gearing up for a six game season, with Opening Day on September 26. We have tentatively set a total of six teams, with four of these as “open” teams and two as competitive teams. While coaches are critical to the success of the program, perhaps the most important position is that of a buddy. Each Miracle League athlete will have an assigned buddy, who will assist him/her with all aspects of playing, whether at bat, rounding the bases, or playing in the field.
If you have an interest in working with these athletes, please consider joining us. To register, please click on the Registration link at the top of the page. As we get closer to Opening Day, we’ll be in touch with you to let you know where we need you. We hope you will consider joining us for the inaugural season of the Miracle League of Southlake. See you at the Ballpark.
Almost Time to Play Ball!
On May 16, the City of Southlake hosted a ribbon cutting for phase 2 of Bicentennial Park, including the Texas Rangers Miracle League Field. This event was a great opportunity to acknowledge City leaders, in particular Mayor John Terrell, and to have Miracle League athletes enjoy the new field. In fact, it was hard to get them off the field!
For pictures from the event, please visit our Flickr page by either clicking on the link at the bottom of the Home page or on the gallery itself. This is an extremely exciting time for all of us involved with Miracle League.
Thanks to the Texas Rangers, the City of Southlake and Miracle League supporters, our inaugural season is just around the corner.
