Two Miracle League Board Members Step Down – The board was informed at our last meeting that Jim Terwilliger and Craig Komar would be leaving the Miracle League Board. Jim served for two years helping to guide our organization through the past two seasons. He and his family represented the league in Findlay this year at the first annual All Star game. Jim has taken a job in Indiana and will be moving his family this summer.
Craig has served on the board for 4 years. He did an outstanding job as secretary and was a great help in preparing our field for the new surface. Craig was a great source of tools and knowledge needed for the odd jobs that go along with maintaining our field. Craig’s family is getting older and more active. This along with his many duties at Fenn Elementary as their principal has necessitated his departure.
We wish both of these members good luck in their future ventures and thank them for their service.

National League Baseball, A League of Their Own!
Age is no barrier in our National League. We have players in their 50’s and players in their teens.The game is a very safe version of baseball due to the Lite Flite ball that we use. It travels well but does not injure our players if they are hit. We have players that have played the game since the late 90’s and players that joined for their first season. Continued…
