Arizona Diamondback pitcher, Heath Bell, has invited Miracle League of Arizona athletes and their families out to enjoy a day of fun at the ballpark! The opportunity includes watching Dback batting practice, meeting Heath Bell himself and some of his friends, enjoying activities at the ballpark’s SANDLOT and getting tickets to the game! Our first group, on May 11th had a blast!!!
Our very own MLAZ Junior athletes rubbing shoulders with Heath!
The best part, is that the opportunity will continue! Keep an eye on your e-mails from us over the summer, as we’ll be rotating through our leagues to give you a shot to enter the drawing for the same opportunity for your athlete and 4 additional family members.
On May 9th and 10th, the Miracle League of Arizona partnered with the Civitan Foundation to make provide a two-day, t-ball tournament. Eight teams participated and more than 200 people found their way to Dan Haren Field for fun, baseball, sandwiches, sun! This was a great success for the first of, what we hope are, many events for these great local athletes.

On April 28th, 2013 our very own player Kyle Byrd was an honorary Diamondback for the day. With the Make-A-Wish Foundation making his dream a reality, he was able to throw out the first pitch and meet and mingle with some of his idols.
Whether you enjoy jewelry shopping yourself, or want to help pass the word along to those you think may be interested, this is a easy and fun way to benefit MLAZ. Saturday the 27th, 1:00-4:00pm.

SATURDAY, MARCH 23RD AT THE SCOTTSDALE GALLERIA
The Charros celebrated spring training with a night of fun and excitement.
There was great food from a variety of local restaurants, complimentary drinks, a huge silent auction, and dancing with the Herndon Brothers Band. Best of all, the proceeds benefited the Miracle League of Arizona and Scottsdale Charro Charities
Our neighboring STARS and their family committee put on a fun day at the Ballpark on the 9th of March. It’s great to have the field in usage, even when we’re in the off-season! Check out their webpage www.starsaz.org for more details.
