Springfield’s Miracle League has kicked off its spring season. More than 200 baseball players with disabilities will be taking the field. Miracle League Commissioner, Cyrus Taylor, said buddy volunteers are greatly needed with so many players.
“When you come out and experience how much joy you’re bringing to these people’s lives, it really makes a big difference,” Taylor said.
Youth teams play Mondays, 5:30, 6:30 and 7:30 p.m.; adult teams play Wednesdays, 6 and 7 p.m., and Thursdays, 6 and 7 p.m.
Each Miracle League player is paired with an on-field volunteer buddy, who may help hit, catch, run bases, cheer and just have fun. Buddies are needed for each one-hour game.
