On Sunday September 24th, members of the RMU Springfield softball team and coaching staff volunteered as buddies and coaches for the Miracle League of Central Illinois for the second consecutive year. They have been asked to come back each year and make it an annual event.
The Miracle League of Central Illinois provides physically and mentally challenged children a safe and spirited program in which they can play on a baseball field just like other kids. Miracle League baseball offers a unique and memorable opportunity these children would not otherwise have.
The Miracle League is a place where every player has the opportunity to run the bases, score and win at every Miracle League game inning. Players who need help with hitting, catching and throwing the ball are paired with a “buddy” who helps out.
