If we were to tell you about an organized youth baseball league, you might call it ordinary.
If we were to tell you the athletes are physically and mentally disabled, you might call it touching.
If you were to see them play, you might call it a miracle.

Mark your calendars for these special events in September:
The Saturday League’s 2013 World Series will be held on Sunday, September 29th from 1:00 to 4:00. There will be three All-Star games with food & refreshments for everyone. Please plan to join us for this fun-filled reunion!
Here is the schedule of All-Star games:
1:00 - Cubs/Cardinals/Reds vs. Mets/Marlins/Braves
2:00 - Dodgers/Yankees/Athletics vs. Red Sox/Tigers
3:00 - D'backs/Indians/Pirates vs. Phillies/Nationals
This year’s World Series will be dedicated to the memory of Stephen Romanelli. Stephen was a buddy for the Cubs for three years. He was tragically killed in an automobile accident in early August, just weeks before he was to begin his college career at OSU. Stephen’s family and several of his teammates and coaches from Dublin Jerome High School are planning to join us at the field.
During the World Series, players and volunteers will be able to able to pick up trophies, pictures, and volunteer appreciation gift cards that were not picked up at the end of the season.
The Rain Date for the World Series will be Saturday, October 12th from 1:00 to 4:00. This rain date avoids OSU football, the Presidents Cup golf tournament in Dublin the first weekend in October, and the Autism Walk on Sunday, October 13th.

The Miracle League is a 501C3 organization and is very dependent on donations for its operation. Although the League Director and Assistant Director receive modest compensation for their involvement, the vast majority of the people helping out before, during, and after the season are volunteers. Less than half of the League’s annual expenses are covered by player registration fees, so the League is heavily reliant on sponsorships and donations from individuals, businesses, and organizations.
To help with fundraising, we have created 4 different sponsorship options:
- Season Sponsor
- Team Sponsor
- Game Day Sponsor
- Special Event Sponsor
If you would like to make a donation, you can send a check to the Central Ohio Miracle League, PO Box 1303, Dublin, OH 43017. Also, if you know of an individual, company, or charitable organization that could assist the League in any way, please contact us at email@example.com.
