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!

One of the many Miracle League all-stars is a 6 years old boy who was born with spina bifida and a seizure disorder, which left him to use a walker. Typically, he preferred to crawl or allow others to carry him in an effort to avoid the obstacles that his walker created. After becoming a player for the Pirates on the Miracle League of the South Hills, his parents, friends and coaches urged him to round the bases. By the final game, this all- star gave everyone the opportunity to observe a miracle. He didn’t crawl and he wasn’t carried. Without his walker, slowly but surely, he ran the bases and came home. His family credits baseball at the Miracle League for his newfound ability to walk and run. Volunteers and fans credit these players for their newfound belief in miracles.

“When your feet tire, run with your heart.”
