Miracle League Game Day: Organization of Players
Every Miracle League player receives a baseball jersey and Major League ball cap, along with a volunteer "buddy" to assist them as they play. Players can choose a "nickname" and a favorite song that will be played as they come up to bat.
Each game has two innings; every player bats once each inning. All base runners are safe. Every player scores a run before the inning is over; the last one up hits a home run. Each team and each player win every game in a tie score.
Teams average 10 - 15 players. Games are played on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings and each game lasts about one hour. No practice is required; players are asked to arrive 30 minutes before scheduled game time. Every team has a head coach and up to four assistant coaches. Community volunteers serve as "buddies" to assist the players.
