We Encourage You!
The Miracle League could not exist without the many volunteers who help before, during and after each season. Middle school and high school students are encouraged to become buddies. There are also many volunteer opportunities for adults. If you are interested in any of the opportunities listed below, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You’re involved now! As a Buddy you are paired up with one of our players and assist that player hit the ball, run the bases, and field as necessary. Many of our player/buddies form lasting friendships! (Note: non-sibling buddies must be 10 years old or older.)
Ever wanted to hear your voice boom out to hundreds of others? You’ll announce each player as they step to the plate and let the crowd know when they score a run – it’s super fun! Usually announces two or three 2-inning games in a row, and usually works every other Saturday.
Field Duty Coordinator
Every 2 or 3 Saturdays work a 4-hour shift at the field by setting up, troubleshooting, answering questions, passing out information, and/or teardown. Several volunteers are needed because, as you know, the more people the fewer number of shifts each person has during the season.
Help the Head Coach with line-ups, dugout control and assist your team with pitching and catching during innings. This is a 10-week baseball season, and each team plays at a different time every Saturday.
Enjoy pairing up players and Buddies before each game. Most players have a pre-assigned Buddy, but there are always instances where either a player or a Buddy doesn’t show. The Buddy Leader stays in the dugout to help the Buddies during the game and can also help when his/her team is on the field.
Support our Facilities Coordinator in making sure that all the necessary supplies are at the field and that all equipment and utilities (scoreboard, mister, etc.) are operational.
Throughout the season and during the off-season this committee coordinates all of the league’s activities. There is a Coordinator for each of these functions on the committee: Registration & Rosters, Facilities, Coaches, Volunteer Recruitment, Buddies, Sponsorships, Announcers, Finances, Special Events, and Website. We are always looking for volunteers to “shadow” and assist the current coordinators. If you are interested in any of these roles, please contact us at email@example.com.
Volunteer Opportunities for Groups
Many companies, teams, churches, fraternities, sororities and other organizations look for opportunities to volunteer as a group. Groups can serve refreshments at our Special Events like Grandparents Day and Trophy Day. They can also serve as “Game-Day Buddies” who help on the field in various ways during games.
