30 Days of Giving 2014: Miracle League Baseball at Stony Brook

Stony Brook University athletes at the Miracle on Long Island baseball event.

Students at Stony Brook University answered the call for volunteers with an overwhelming response at the Miracle League of Long Island event. The Miracle League of Long Island is a charitable organization that provides a baseball league for children with disabilities. This league is FREE to all players.

The baseball doubleheader, held at Stony Brook University’s Joe Nathan Field, offered nearly 40 people with disabilities a chance to develop their social skills and increase self-esteem. More than 175 Seawolf buddies volunteered to help protect the players from balls and assist them with batting and running the bases.

A video about the event can be viewed below:
