Also, in today’s Miami Herald there was a great article on the Miracle League of Pembroke Pines.

You could not find a more accurate word than ‘Miracle’ to describe what happens on and around a Miracle field.  You can see on the face of each player, family member, coach, volunteer and spectator how much this experience touches every heart.

Buck-a-Roos and Lil’ Dobbers

We just wrapped up an awesome homestand!  Not only did the guys go 5-1 on the field, but they also made their impact known off of it.

On Friday night, John Buck hosted his first Buck-a-Roos night of the season.  A group of kids from Shake-A-Leg Miami living with autism along with their families were treated to a pre-game meet and greet with Buck, a new-look Buck-a-Roos t shirt, tickets behind homeplate and refreshments.  Shake-A-Leg Miami also received a check from the Foundation for $50,000.  A portion of that gift will go to fund Marlins Mornings on the Bay, which will also feature a Buck-a-Roo component.  Shake-A-Leg Miami, one of Miami’s premier sailing and water sports centers, provides the opportunity for everyone to enjoy the waters of Biscayne Bay, regardless of physical, emotional or financial abilities. 

Prior to the game against the Cubs on Wednesday night, Greg Dobbs debuted his Lil’ Dobbers program.  Every Wednesday night game, Dobbs will host 10 Lil’ Dobbers from the Boys and Girls Club.  Each Lil’ Dobber will have the opportunity to watch batting practice from the field, meet Dobbs, receive a tshirt, a ticket above the Marlins dugout and refreshments for the game. 

Both Shake-A-Leg Miami and the Boys and Girls Club are official charity partners of the MIami Marlins.
