Georgetown Students Volunteer as ‘Buddy’ During Miracle League
GEORGETOWN – On Saturday, May 11, Georgetown Students volunteered as a buddy during the 2024 Spring Games of the Miracle League of Massachusetts.
The Miracle League, a non-profit and volunteer-run organization, provides students with a disability the opportunity to play baseball in an organized league, and at no cost their their family.
As a buddy, each of the twenty-two Georgetown students was paired with a student with a disability, who they assisted to participate during the games.
“Baseball enjoys a very special place in the heart and history of Massachusetts,” Georgetown Public Schools Superintendent Margo Ferrick said. “I’m incredibly proud of our students for helping others to enjoy the game, and for their efforts to build everlasting friendships and relationships.”
The Spring Games took place at the Miracle Field in Acton, a custom field with rubberized turf, wheelchair-accessible dugouts, and a completely flat surface.
Leading the Georgetown delegation was Varsity Baseball Head Coach Phil Desilets.
“The Miracle League of Massachusetts is doing wonderful things for children and adults with disabilities,” Coach Desilets said. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to help out and continue to foster relationships through the Miracle League.”
The Georgetown baseball team will collect donations for the Miracle League at the Spofford Tournament being held during the Memorial Day weekend.
