Adaptive Baseball League
Last week while picking up a donation, I met Gary Morton. He gave me information for the Miracle League of the SF Peninsula. The league pairs individuals with disabilities with a buddy to play baseball. The images in their flyers are of children with disabilities playing baseball. Attached below are fliers about registering to play or to volunteer. The players' age range is from 5 to Adult, and the age range to be a volunteer buddy is from 10 to Adult. The games are played at Hawes Park in Redwood City, CA. For more information, contact Gary Morton at 650-867-4094 or at email@example.com, or check out their website www.miracleleaguesfpen.com.
Thanks, Gary for creating this Awesome Non-profit and allowing us to post about it!
