CARY, N.C. — They call them “special needs children” and each and every one of them is a blessing. The Miracle League of the Triangle was conceived in 2004 “to provide children with special needs the opportunity to play America’s Favorite pasttime … the game of baseball.”
The Miracle League of the Triangle opened its doors on September 16, 2006, at Adams Elementary School in Cary, and NC State has had a special connection with the Miracle League ever since. The Wolfpack baseball team has visited the Miracle League every year since its inception, and the Pack made its most recent visit on Saturday, Sept. 10.
“Our players really appreciate the important work that the Miracle League does for these kids, and they love going there to lend their support,” Wolfpack coach Elliott Avent said. “The children are incredibly special, and our players really bond with them. I don’t know who has more fun, our players or the Miracle League players.”
