The Board of Directors of the Miracle League of Amherstburg proudly recognizes Bryan Dzombak as Volunteer of the Year for the 2012 and 2013 seasons.  Bryan's overall enthusiasm, positive attitude and willingness to help as a volunteer made a huge impact every game day at the Miracle Diamond.  Each and every Saturday, Bryan was one of the first to arrive at the field and one of the very last to leave at the end of the day.  Bryan worked tirelessly setting up, taking down, acting as umpire, back catcher, buddy, cheer leader,  and most importantly teammate for the Diamond Team.  
Bryan's genuine spirit of giving is a wonderful example to all who choose to volunteer and give of their time.    He is a true leader and a shining example  to us all.  Congratulations Bryan!

ROCKFORD, MI -- With a gleam in his eye and a ball in his hand, Tony Comden stepped out in front of a crowd of five hundred people and prepared to pitch to his son, Jed.

To the enjoyment of the crowd, Jed smacked a short line drive and dashed to first base -- what a way to begin his first game as part of the new West Michigan Miracle League.

Four teams of children with mental and physical disabilities played in two games Saturday to open up the new facility in Rockford dubbed the Nate Hurwitz Field, which was created with larger team boxes, entry ways and a smooth, rubbery playing surface to accommodate wheelchairs.

Hurwitz, who was a junior at Forest Hills Eastern High School, had Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and had to use a wheelchair for much of his childhood. He died unexpectedly in September 2012, which sparked an outpouring of support to see the Miracle Field built.

"A picture is worth a thousand words but to see the smiles on their faces and them wearing their jerseys with their name on the back, their parents and grandma and grandpas here cheering them on, you can't describe or put a value on the impact we're having on kids today," Tony Comden said.

Comden started the WMML in 2011 after seeing his son's joy while playing in conventional tee ball games. Jed uses a walker after battling a brain tumor when he was 3-years old and Comden wanted to spread that joy to others who had their own challenges.
