On Saturday, May 11th, the Summerville Miracle League welcomed the Charleston RiverDogs to their facilities in Summerville for a morning of fun, and baseball. Ten players from the 2013 RiverDogs team volunteered as “Buddies” for the league, assisting the young players hit the ball, run the bases, and play the field.
“It was amazing to watch these kids on the field,” says Community Relations Intern, Lily Belter. “They were having so much fun! And it was great to see them interacting with the RiverDogs players.”
The goal of The Summerville Miracle League is to enhance the lives of people with special needs. The league uses primarily the national pastime of baseball, as well as other activities, to bring together the athletes and their families and enrich their lives in a meaningful way.
