Kiwanis Miracle League hosts end of year banquet
MARION, Iowa (KCRG) - The Kiwanis Miracle League at Prospect Meadows held its end of year banquet Sunday in Marion.
Players received medals to celebrate the end of the season.
The baseball league for children with disabilities began in 2019. Six teams participated this season.
Each team plays three innings in an hour and every kid gets to hit. The last player hits a grand slam to bring their teammates home. In addition, every game played ends in a tie, because the league is focused on the kids having fun.
“The kids are so much fun. They have so much fun out here and it just lights them up,” said Byron Tabor, president of Kiwanis Miracle League at Prospect Meadows. “I talk to the parents, they can’t hardly wait to get out here,” he added pointing to the field.
Tabor expects the new season, which usually runs approximately six weeks, to start in April.
Tabor added the organization hopes to expand its league by adding more teams in the future.
