The League of YES a big hit for players, volunteers

The League of YES gives young people with disabilities an opportunity to play the American pastime. The group started out as part of the Miracle League, but last year branched out on its own. It plans to expand beyond baseball with chapters across the country.

As I write in this LI Life cover for Newsday, the league saw its first real expansion beyond one asphalt ballfield in Suffolk with a state-of-the-art multipurpose ballpark this spring at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow.

The volunteers are passionate about helping out, and the joy I got to see on the players’ faces made the experience especially worthwhile.
