LAST DAY OF FALL SEASON IS TODAY
It’s a great day for baseball–and we’ve got LOTS of buddies thanks to DM Physical Therapy club, ISU Alpha Gamma Delta, and Wells Fargo Retail Services for helping us today! Weather is gorgeous! Stop by for smiles!
Last Call for the annual trophy/pizza party, Saturday, October 15, noon – 2 pm, Lutheran Church of Hope, West Des Moines. You MUST register–contact Joyce Byrne IMMEDIATELY!
And our first ever Halloween Game Night is Thursday, October 20, 6:30 PM. Costumes welcome. Treats for All. ONE GAME. Again, you MUST register–contact Joyce Byrne IMMEDIATELY!
September 24, we welcomed several visitors from the Middle East–Egypt, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, to name but a few. Sponsored by the U. S. Dept. of State and the Iowa International Center, our visitors specialize in working with people with disabilities in their countries, and are here to see what we do in America. They cheered on our players/buddies at the 1 PM game and actually buddied our 2 PM game. Great fun!
September 12 was a special night as we hosted the players and coaches from the Ankeny Miracle League for two games. All had a great time–and all players enjoyed a special treat in addition to the usual drink ticket–a hot dog! Many thanks to the Southeast Polk Girls Softball Team for being our buddies!
ADULT LEAGUE PLAY IS CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!
Thanks to the KML Board of Directors for putting all players and coaches in new uniforms this fall! They are sharp!
2016 OPENING DAY VIDEO
Thanks to all for the wonderful 2016 SPRING SEASON. Our last games of the Sunday were on June 25. Unfortunately, Mother Nature didn’t cooperate particularly well–we cancelled the afternoon games due to heat.
We had great fun for the Police & Fire Departments’ ALL STAR GAMES on June 14!
THERE’S ALWAYS TIME FOR BASEBALL!
May 23 was the first of what we hope are many “away” games for our Kiwanis Miracle League players. THE GAMES WERE GREAT! We had 24 players for the game at 6 and 16 for the 7 PM game plus 7 coaches and 2 managers! And our players’ new uniforms looked really snazzy! We will be hosting the Ankeny Miracle League players on September 12.

What we do
Kiwanis Miracle League is truly a miracle as it provides a place for children with special needs to enjoy our nation’s pastime, Baseball.
But it is truly so much more than that. It is an opportunity for families to come together and enjoy the great outdoors and the spirit of competition. Or at least what WE call competition. You see, everyone bats, everyone scores and every came ends in a tie.
We also have space for dedicated volunteers, our “buddies” who help our players get the most out of the experience. Groups and individuals from all walks of life have volunteered to be buddies or our youngsters and we welcome you as well. Click on “Volunteer” to learn more!
We also have been blessed with great supporters and financial donations to keep the field running.
One of the best parts about Kiwanis Miracle League is the concession stand and every player enjoys a free drink after the game. Our players LOVE that!
But most of all, Kiwanis Miracle League is something you must experience for yourself. Come out to a game this season!
The Kiwanis Miracle League needs volunteers right away. Be a buddy, or volunteer in a variety of ways!
