Spring has finally arrived and the Miracle League of Amherstburg has returned with it.

The spring season of Miracle League got underway last Saturday at their diamond at the Libro Centre with nine teams playing four games – three teams combined to play one game due to the uneven number of teams – during the day-long event.

Miracle League publicity director Michele Vigneux said the Miracle League is up to 150 players with several more on a waiting list.

“We continue to get more players,” she said. “We may have to look at expanding but now we can accommodate players on nine teams.”

Many of the players are returning from past seasons, she added, though there are a number of new players as well.

“We’re always happy to have new players,” said Vigneux, noting they also get to experience the opportunity to play baseball.
