Batter up!

It’s a great sound when the umpire belts out, “Play ball!” Every season, our Miracle Leaguers can’t wait to take the field. Their excitement is contagious and heart-warming to see – because we believe every child deserves the chance to play baseball.

Miracle League of Green Bay
Parent Expectations

From the Executive Director:

The Miracle League goal is to make participation in the sport of baseball as enjoyable and realistic of an experience for your child as possible. Safety is a top priority. For that reason we have volunteers who are buddies to assist each child, and we have expectations of parents who sign up their child for the program. Please read and abide by the following expectations to help assure a safe and wonderful baseball environment.

– Paul Liegeois, Founder/Executive Director, Miracle League of Green Bay

Parent Attendance – A parent or guardian MUST be in attendance at all of the Miracle League athlete’s games. The only exception is for a grandparent and only if a signed proxy by the parent is provided ( Form available on-line). Otherwise the rule is “No Parent: No Play.”

When you agreed/signed the Release at Registration you agreed to this mandatory condition of play. By being present, the Parent is expected to be the first responder in any case of an illness, accident, or injury to their child. That parent is also expected to have on-hand any specific medications for that child, and be solely responsible for dispensing them as required. YOU are there for all medical decisions involving your child. A first-aid kit is available at the concession stand.

Uniform Required – The team uniform is required to be worn. “No Uniform; No Play”

Proper Shoes Required – Sport shoes, or “tennis” shoes are the proper footwear. No open–toe shoes or sandals or slides/slip-ons allowed. This is a safety rule and will be enforced. “No Shoes – No Play.”

Weekly Attendance Expected – If you cannot be in attendance at the next week’s game, it is expected that you communicate that to your team leads so that, as a courtesy, your child’s buddy can be informed to not have to be there or so they can be used to be a substitute buddy for another buddy who is unable to show. Do not only inform your child’s buddy and expect that message to get back to your team leads. You must contact your team leads. Please understand that buddies are volunteering their time and we need to be respectful in informing them of a child’s absence. Plus, they are excited and some of them are trying to earn community ‘service hours.’

Buddies Are to Remain at the Field ‘In Play’ (not at playground) – While our buddies are paired up with individual children, our buddies are dedicated to help the overall team. There is not an expectation for buddies to work or play with children ‘off’ the field at the playground or otherwise should a child decide to leave the game, mid-game. Unless buddies are family members, buddies should remain available to the team.

Only Authorized Persons Allowed on Field – Once the game starts, only authorized persons are allowed on the field ( those players, volunteers, and team management that have signed releases and are covered by the league’s insurance). Unless there as a buddy, this means No parents, other siblings, grandparents, etc. allowed otherwise on the field or in the dugouts during games.

No Food Allowed on Field or in Dugouts – Food is not allowed in the dugouts or on the field. Parents, please do not furnish food or snacks to be consumed in the dugouts or on the field. Spills and litter on the field attract birds, which then usually results in a slippery, unsafe mess. Please help.

Your Volunteer Help is Needed – Especially if you applied for and received a scholarship it is expected that you are available to volunteer to help, if asked, for things like staffing the concession stand to helping out for special events or fundraisers.
