Carolina Miracle League registration through Feb. 4

Published 10:31pm Thursday, January 17, 2013

They say time flies when you are having fun, and that is certainly the case for the Carolina Miracle League, as the league has opened registration for its seventh spring campaign.

There were 95 children who participated in the CML’s 2012 spring season, while 76 participated in the fall.

These participation numbers show the league’s steady growth from its inception in May 2007. This past fall season set a new record for participants in that season, while last spring was only six participants shy of the all-time league record of 101 players in spring of 2010.

Carolina Miracle League Spring season registration is now being accepted online at carolinamiracleleague.org through Feb. 4. Families may register in-person at Miracle Park, located inside North Spartanburg Park on Old Furnace Road in Boiling Springs, on Saturday, Jan. 26 from 10-11 a.m.

The CML will celebrate “Opening Week” with games on March 25 and March 28.  Again, the deadline to register for the 2012 spring season is Monday, Feb. 4.

“We continue to be blessed by the number of people who assist our league financially and through their time and talents. Because the league continues to grow, we know we are serving our mission to provide children and their families with an opportunity to be part of an organized athletic league when they likely wouldn’t have that chance otherwise. Not only that, with us going into year seven, our CML families are able to form friendships and bonds that we hope will last a lifetime,” said CML executive director Pam Dean.

The Carolina Miracle League (CML), founded in 2001, provides children with disabilities in Spartanburg, Union and Cherokee Counties in South Carolina and Rutherford and Polk Counties in North Carolina the opportunity to participate in an organized baseball league.
