The Rotary Club of Monroe formed the Miracle League, a youth baseball team co-sponsored with the Monroe/Sky Valley Family YMCA, for children with special needs.
Many of our players have profound physical and cognitive challenges. These kids have never had the opportunity to do the exciting things every kid should get to experience. Miracle League offers these children an opportunity to suit up in a uniform, step up to the plate, and enjoy playing the game of baseball in its purest form.
A player can be assigned a buddy if they need one. It is a dream most of them would not be able to realize as members of a traditional youth baseball league.
“Everyone hits, every one gets on base, and everyone comes home.” No one keeps score. And everyone has fun!
