Special Needs Parents...
« on: January 19, 2013, 01:50:28 PM »

I just signed my son up for Miracle League Baseball and thought I'd pass along the information for any parents with special needs kids. My son played for the first time last year and had a blast. It's a little bit of a drive (about 45 minutes) to Miracle Field in Southfield, but a really great opportunity for kids to play ball who may not be able to participate in local ball. They have competitive and non-competitive ball, depending on whether or not the child needs assistance from 'buddies'.

Here's the website for anyone interested: http://www.michiganmiracle.org/

Sounds like a great organization pam...  not sure how long they've been around.  I wish we would have found something like this for our youngest.  She played T-ball a couple of years and then lost interest when it became more competitive.  I can see where she could have 'competed' just fine in this group.

It might be a bit of a drive but these are days you'll cherish 8) 8) 8)

They also have a league in Northwood, OH.  That's just south of Toledo on I-75 and not far from the freeway.  Near Owens Community College or the new Casino.

I don't know if this would be any closer for you pam or if you'd even want to switch at this point.  For people in southern Monroe County this would be closer for sure.

Thanks for the info, BRD...I never knew there was a closer organization. We started with the Miracle League up in Southfield on the recommendation of a friend, so I think we're staying put, but that's good info for people around here who may be closer to the Ohio line.
