Timber Creek softball is giving back to their community and having fun. The team has taken up a side project in Miracle League Baseball, a program for special needs children who want to play ball.
Coach Moore started the Timber Creek program this year after discovering a Southlake branch of Miracle League had opened up. This particular field of interest is close to heart for the team.
“My brother, he has Down syndrome. So my coach heard that my brother was in it and she thought it would be a good idea to go help them,” said Timber Creek first base player Caitlyn Curlee. “We get members of the softball team to go out there and just help them get to hit the ball, run around the bases, just be there to support them.”
The team goes out on a Saturday and shadows the Cardinals. They help them run bases, hit the balls, and play defense.
“It’s not all about the game. It’s about giving back and being a part of something bigger than yourself,” said Coach Moore. “It gets those kids out there, and it lets them enjoy the game of baseball.”
