The Optimists exist to support youth and what a privilege it is to support Miracle League Baseball.  This organization is dedicated to helping children with physical and mental disabilities develop and achieve their full potential.  They do it by providing the kids the opportunity to play baseball as part of a team in an organized league—but it’s really so much more.

Players get a chance to be part of a team, supporting each other and developing positive relationships.  Parents get to relax, watch and celebrate the success of their children on the field.  Volunteer coaches and buddies experience what it means to give back to a community

If you know of a child who would benefit by participating, would like to volunteer or help in any way, you can get more information by going to their website:
