Miracle League of East Texas
Thank you for signing-up to help out the Miracle League of East Texas!
We have multiple volunteer opportunities for all ages! The Fall season Opening Day will be September 22nd, and games will continue each Saturday with the last being on October 27th (6 games in all). We ask that all volunteers arrive at 8:30 am and stay until about 11 pm. Volunteer shirts will be provided. If you are a past volunteer please wear the shirt already provided if possible. Some descriptions for volunteer opportunities are as follows:
Buddy (56 volunteers each Saturday) - Age Range is 11 years old to 17 years old. The Miracle League of East Texas is possible in large part thanks to our volunteers known as "buddies." Buddies support the Miracle League players on and off the field during the game and assist them with batting, running the bases, fielding the ball and in general making sure each child has a great time playing baseball!
Homer the Mascot (1) - 12 years and up (the suit is bigger so really size is more important than age). Who doesn't love a mascot? This volunteer position would have you inside the mascot suit greeting the kids, interacting with the crowd and overall just having a good time.
Dugout Assistant (1) - This volunteer position would help ensure each player leaves the dugout with the proper equipment (bat, helmet, tee, etc.) and assistive devices needed.
Pitcher (1) - 13 years and up. Some players will be hitting off tees while others will have the ball pitched to them. This volunteer position would be pitching to those players. We are all here to have fun so no curve balls or chin music!
Umpire (1) - 13 years and up. The role of the umpire is to keep the game moving along. We have our own special set of rules that we would go over prior to each game. You would not be calling balls and strikes so no worries there. Just be willing to dress the part.
1st Base Coach (1) - 13 years and up. This volunteer will help move the base runners along and help create a positive, fun experience for the kiddos!
3rd Base Coach (1) - 13 years and up. This volunteer will help move the base runners along and help create a positive, fun experience for the kiddos!
Sign Up Table (2) - 13 years and up. This volunteer position would help fellow volunteers get signed in and pointed in the right direction. You would also make sure each volunteer has a size-appropriate T-shirt.
T-Shirt Table (2) - 13 years and up. This volunteer position would help fellow volunteers get signed in and pointed in the right direction. You would also make sure each volunteer has a size-appropriate T-shirt.
Video Board Assistant (1) - 13 years and up. We have a state-of-the-art video board which requires a full-time operator during the games. It is user-friendly in terms of operation so do not be intimidated. We will thoroughly train prior to the games.
Note: Volunteers over the age of 17 are required to fill out a quick form for background checks. Thanks!
