Heartwarming video of UK Baseball and Miracle League

If you have been searching for a feel-good story today, here is one for you. It is one that really touches the heart, especially those of us that are diehard baseball fans. But you don’t even have to know the game of baseball, or even be a fan of sports to appreciate what this is all about.

The UK baseball team made a trip to the Bluegrass Miracle League field in September to buddy up with the disabled children in the league. Everyone gets to play, everyone gets to bat, everyone gets to score, and everyone wins.

UK baseball Sports Information Director, Brent Ingram tweeted a link to video this afternoon of their game. It is truly awesome what the team did for these kids.

    Was blessed to be a Coach of the Miracle for 5 seasons (Fall/Spring seasons each year). Always loved how UK baseball team as well as Asbury and the local high schools come out to help all the kids. Miss the league since I moved to Florida this fall.

    I am so proud to be a Kentucky graduate. Huge thanks for all the amazing baseball players that took time out of their schedule to put a smile on those kids faces. I have worked with and been around special needs kids for all my life and to see this absolutely melted my heart and darn near made a tough cat fan emotional. Ah well, it made me emotional!

    So many people make the statement about Coach Cal that “he just get sit”, well folks I am hear to tell you that Coach Gary Henderson just gets it as well. AS a parent of a special needs kid and an avid UK fan, I love this.
