What is your favorite part of a Miracle League game? Why? Honestly, there is not one favorite part of the ML game because the whole experience of the hour and a half we have together is special. The time we have to greet each other is important in order for us to catch up and for the players to have time to have interpersonal time. I enjoy leading the dug – out and the volunteers while cheering on the players while they circle the bases. Working in lockstep with the co-coaches models teamwork for our players and volunteers, and I am thankful for our devoted team of coaches. Every part of my experience on the field is my favorite part; well except for the part when I leave for the evening.

What is your favorite part of a Miracle League game? My favorite part of a Miracle League game is helping my players have fun on the field because it makes me happy to see them enjoying baseball in whatever way they choose.
