Gary Morton is not one for sitting still so when he heard some familiar pings, Gary sneaked away from the exuberant party guests and towards the classic noise of baseballs clinking off bats.
but right in front of him were about twenty kids with special needs. They all were paired with a buddy and playing BASEBALL!!! Gary sat on the bleachers and witnessed the announcer booming each player's name over the sound system, the parents cheering wildly, and what could only be an atmosphere of unmistakable joy.
When one of Gary's daughters finally found him, he was filled with emotion. Gary's daughter Sarah, who had been disabled, had recently passed away. The game in front of him seemed like a sign. By the time Gary and his family headed back from the Los Angeles wedding, The Miracle League of SF Peninsula was already beginning to take form.
We are an adaptive baseball league for both youth and adult players with special needs. No matter an individuals' disabilities we welcome them into our community and we will find a way to support them so that they are able to have the best possible experience.
5 to 17 years old*
* we have found that there are some younger players more comfortable playing in the Adult League and some 18+ players more comfortable playing in the Youth League. We are willing to work out these situations on a case by case basis. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions
The Miracle League of SF Peninsula would not be able to run without our amazing volunteers. Volunteers comprise the heart of the Miracle League and are essential for successful gameplay. Please click the button below explaining volunteer options.
