Randall had the opportunity to volunteer as a "buddy" for the newly created Miracle League in Springdale, Ark. (There are 200 miracle leagues nationwide, but this is the first in our area). It is a baseball league for special needs kids - age 4 and up - with any diagnosis. Some are purely physical and others are mental or emotional. Each child is assigned a buddy to help them hit/run/catch/throw. Some of the kids were in wheelchairs, and others had full motion but were autistic or had other forms of mental retardation. The field is unique in that instead of dirt/grass, it is thick rubbery material. There are no outs, no winning, no losing. It is a very positive atmosphere and the families were so excited to be there cheering on their kids/siblings/grandkids. This Miracle League is new, but popular already. There were six teams there, with 7-8 kids on each team.
