Montgomery Miracle League Starts New Season

miraclepollyEaster Seals Dogs on Call is thrilled to be entering in to its fourth year of partnership with the Montgomery Miracle League, a baseball program for children and adults with disabilities. Our ‘Dugout Dogs’ have been active participants with the players not only in the dugouts, but on the field!

Kerry Cherry, Director of the Miracle League and fellow DOC member, states: Having the DOC partnership with the MML has been amazing in the changes we’re seeing in many of our players. We are seeing more eye contact, more social interaction, more motivation for the players to try a little harder to make it around the bases, and of course more smiles. This is the best venue DOC has, in MY opinion!

Please feel free to come out and enjoy a game! The season starts on March 27th and runs through May 16th. The field is located in the Edward Thompson Park, 1655 Ray Thorington Rd. –Montgomery, Al 36117. Friday night games start at 6 PM and Saturday games run from 9:30 AM -12:30 PM.

The Miracle League / Dogs on Call experience will is a great way to start a weekend!
