Thank you for supporting the Miracle League of the South Hills, our players, and especially our runners!

By donating, you have become one of the biggest cheerleaders for our players who need you! Thanks for brightening our day; here is something to brighten yours!

This is an especially cool story from one of our Miracle League of the South Hills youth buddies.
When I volunteered to help the Tigers I was assigned to Jacob, a boy who was in a wheel chair with other disabilities. I struggled to imagine how he would handle playing baseball, even in the Miracle League. When he was called to the plate for the first time I was nervous, nervous that he wouldn’t know what to do, nervous that he wouldn’t be able to hit the ball. To my shock, however, Jake hit it on his first try and headed for first base with a big smile on his face. It was then that I realized why the Miracle League was so important. I went in thinking it was so the kids could have fun. But at that moment, I realized it was deeper than that. The Miracle League finally gives kids with special needs the opportunity to feel like the rest of us. Everyone wants to be part of a team, but until the organization started kids with special needs could never be part of a team. Even though the ball Jacob hit rolled no more than five feet he was happy. Not happy because he pulled off an incredible athletic achievement, but because he was finally part of a team. Wherever Jacob goes he is Jacob, the kid in the wheelchair. Not here, here he is Jacob, 2nd base for the Tigers. And that is all Jacob, or any other kid ever wanted.


Thanks for being part of our team!

If you’re ever looking for a little motivation, feel free to join us during the spring season and see what our kids and adults can do!
