Help Make Dreams Reality

Thank you!  All of you! All of our supporters! Because of you 2012 was a major success!  We held our first 5K, our first family fun day, and, with your help, built the first handicap-accessible field in the state, our field of dreams!  Fall marked our first season there, and boy was it a blast!

Player Profile: Matt T.

We know him as one-fourth of the power squad, the Fantastic Four, but our heavy-hitter, Matt T. has so much more to him. A junior at Acton-Boxborough, Matt is in the ODP Program. This 11th grader likes to spend his spare time playing Xbox 360. He loves Miracle League (the feeling is mutual) and he absolutely loves the military!

Let's get to know our super star Matt!

Get To Know...Buddy Cherie

If you've been to Miracle League a thousand times or just once, you know Cherie. She greets everyone with an infectious smile!

Cherie graduated from Wentworth with a degree in Interior Design and now works in Boston. However, she grew up in Acton, graduating from ABRHS, and still lives nearby in West Acton. There are many reasons Cherie makes a great buddy; her softball skills (from college), her sincere upbeat attitude, her nurturing nature (she's the big sister to a brother and two sisters), and so much more. Let's get to know one of our absolute favorite buddies...Cherie!

Player Profile: Patrick

Perhaps half baseball star and half fish, when Patrick is off the field, he's in the water. A lover of swimming, he spends a lot of time at two his favorite places, the "W" lakes, Winnipesaukee and Winnisquam. You could also catch him riding the waves along the coast of Rhode Island! But alas, we gill-less humans must spend some time on land, and so it goes for Patrick. The 15-year-old goes to CASE Collaborative and spends his land time listening to music, especially XM Radio, going to Classic Car Shows, riding his bike with friends, and watching and playing any and every sport you can think of!
