Passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving friends on September 21, 2015 at the age of 17. Taneysha will be sadly missed by her many caregivers, friends and all those who had the pleasure of knowing her. She was active in the community including being a member of the Miracle League Baseball Team in Amherstburg and volunteering at Redemption Ranch. She was a graduate of John McGivney School and currently enjoyed her classes at Holy Names High School.

Taneysha, in her short life, touched many and left her imprint on all of them. “When you lose someone you love, you gain an angel whose name you know”
“For one moment, step back and enjoy what you all have done. Whatever part big or small you have played in making the Miracle League come to life every Saturday morning without pay, without reward, and without fanfare. Each one of you has had your heart grow a little bit each time…..”
Please join the Board of Directors, Coaches, the many Volunteers and most especially
the Players & their Families

CELEBRATE OUR NEW BASEBALL FIELD!!
Grand Slam event to be held
Saturday, September 19, 2015 at 11 am
(located next to the Libro Complex)
We invite the Communities of Windsor & Essex County and all who have helped or continue to support the dream of having
Canada’s “first” Miracle League
to be a part of this celebration and see the beautiful new diamond
Come and watch the best baseball game you will ever see!!
A new playing surface and LED scoreboard will keep ballplayers with the Miracle League of Amherstburg feeling like major leaguers for years to come.
The baseball league is open to anyone with intellectual or physical disabilities in Windsor and Essex County. When the league began play it was the first fully accessible league in Canada.
After six seasons of wear and tear the diamond’s rubber playing surface is showing its age. The new scoreboard isn’t necessary, but who wouldn’t want that as part of their stadium?
“It wasn’t that we had the surface wear out, we just had a donor who came in and said, “What would you like? I’d love to donate to the Miracle League,’” said Chuck Bondy, the league’s president. “We thought we’d love to have a new surface and LED scoreboard.
147 Golfers, 53 hole sponsors, 30+ door prizes, 4 amazing trips, 16 volunteers, Sutton Creek Golf Course....all created the recipe for an INCREDIBLE day!! Sunshine, blue skies and many many generous supporters. We had a truly successful and fun-filled day. A BIG thank you to all who supported us again this year. We are already looking forward to August 20th next year for our 7th annual tournament ( after a little rest of of course smile emoticon ) !
