The Miracle League of Arizona Road Show & The First Player

So now Gene and I are putting on our version of the Miracle League Road Show.  True to Gene’s power and drive, we already had our first few stops planned by the time we drove back from Surprise and visiting with Paul Frie of the City of Surprise.

To prepare for the road show, we determined that a picture would speak a thousand words.  I called friends at Baum’s Sporting Goods, who supply many of the youth leagues in Arizona with uniforms and equipment and asked them to rustle up a uniform for our first player.  They responded enthusiastically and they promised to have one ready by the next Thursday.

So at Dreamcatcher Park the following Thursday afternoon, we met up with our first player sign-up, Nicolas Thau, to present Nic Dreaming at Dreamcatcher Parkhim with the #1 uniform from Miracle League.  Nick brought his brother, who is also his Buddy, Christopher, and the van driver, Cristy Thau.  As soon as Gene showed Nick the uniform the over, Nick couldn’t wait to get into it.  The pictures speak volumes about how ready Nic is to play baseball!  The field is also seen in the background – Paul promises that it’ll be ready for us the end of March.  We’re also working on Opening Day Ceremonies with The City – stay tuned on details as they come out.
