Sports

Opening ceremonies took place for this season’s Miracle League competition.

The teams are named after major league ball clubs. It accommodates players who have mental and physical challenges. Dothan Mayor Mark Saliba says it is a wonderful experience to watch the players and their “buddies,” the volunteers who assist them run the bases.

Also for the first time, the Miracle League invited high school baseball players from across the Wiregrass to be part of the festivities. A chance to enjoy lunch together, and discuss America’s favorite past time.
