Miracle League of Stanislaus County

“There is nothing more heart warming than to see children playing America’s pastime, baseball. But for children facing serious physical and mental disabilities, that opportunity isn’t always easy to achieve. Baseball diamonds are not exactly designed for athletes with wheelchairs or crutches in mind. With your help, we can remove these barriers and allow these special athletes to experience the joy of playing baseball.” The Miracle League of Stanislaus County (“MLSC”) has constructed a specialized baseball field and operates a league for handicapped youth.  MLSC’s field and program are modeled on the standards established by the National Miracle League Organization, which has assisted local communities in constructing over 240 fields nationally.

The Miracle of Baseball

By FRANKIE TOVAR

Miracles by definition are extraordinary events or actions that create feelings of Battchersurprise for those who witness and experience them. Walking on water and cheating death against all odds are examples that tend to foot the bill, but sometimes miracles aren’t as conspicuous. For some, the ability to play a game of baseball is a miracle unto itself.

Dalton Battcher is one such example. Born with cerebral palsy, hydrocephalus, scoliosis and other disabilities, playing baseball or any other sport didn’t seem to be a viable option. There just seemed to be too many barriers to overcome. Click Here to read more.
