Miracle League of Arizona – By The Numbers!

Did you know that Miracle League of Arizona is now three years old?  Did you know that 1997 was the year Miracle League national was begun? and lastly, did you know that there are now over 100 fields under construction in the US with the Miracle League name?

These are the numbers of Miracle League, as we have come to them – we believe every kid has the right to participate in the great American Past Time of Baseball and we’ll do all we can to support the development and use of facilities that support that mission.

Social Media for a Special Needs Community

Social media is a new way to connect communities, both on the web and off. It is an Internet-based tactic, to be sure, but by connecting online as well as off, we share more of ourselves and what makes us a community. 

facebook-logo The most popular tool for connecting in an online social network is called Facebook, you may have read something about it recently.  Membership in Facebook is at no charge at all; it is free to anyone who wishes to join.

With that introduction, I will invite you all to the Miracle League of Arizona group on Facebook.  It’s a place to connect in a new way, extend our community beyond the usual and to find out more about each other as we share ourselves, our experiences and our ideas for baseball in the special needs community here in Arizona.

I work professionally in social media and it’s application to business, so setting up this group was a natural for me.  I’ve recently been asked to examine how social media can be used in the non-profit realm as well, so this is one of the ways I find out how it works.

Here is the link – welcome to the social side of the Internet!
