DEWITT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WNLS) - In Dewitt Township it was opening day Monday. For the second year, the Miracle League of Mid-Michigan held an exhibition game to kick off its 2013 season. It was a fund raising event that was more than just about raising money, but raising spirits.
The grass may be not be real and it's just an exhibition game, but to these players, it's the real deal.
"This one time last season, I hit one so far they couldn't find it," said Second Year Player Christopher Hibbs.
Christopher Hibbs is a cool kid with a big bat on on opening day at Case Cares Miracle field, it meant he got time to rub elbows with some big time players, like MSU's Cam Gibson, the son of tiger great Kurt Gibson.
"I think what I meant by the best player was the coolest looking one, Hibbs said.
But after the jokes, it's time to play ball. A time that allows these kids, each with their own disability to just be kids.
"The kids get a chance to play ball just like everybody else, to see the smiles of their faces, it's magical," said Parent Rob Cate.
"It's just great to see the field and the fans it's great," said Eric Cate.
And that magic has worked wonders for eight year old Shanel Cabrera.
"She's been really shy, so this has made her getting to talk to people more, so getting to be around a lot of people, getting her out of her shell, this helps out a lot," said Mother Melisa Toler.
Creating moments for players and parents like Melisa Toler and Rob Cate to watch their son or daughter, take center stage like a big leaguer and have their moment in the sun.
"My favorite time of the week, favorite time of the week, can't wait, we got the calendar scratched and we don't miss it for a thing," Cate said.
How could you miss an opportunity to play on a field, where dreams really do come true.
If you'd like someone you know to have the chance to take part in the Cares Miracle Field, there is still space available for this season.
