We started the League of Dreams five years ago to give all children the same opportunity to play in sports leagues regardless of their disability. In these days of player lockouts, contract disputes, it is awesome to see a group of kids who LOVE just being part of the game.
We are attempting to build a rubber baseball field in Bakersfield for these children so they can play on a safe surface. The regular fields not only present a trip hazard but also many of our athletes are medically sensitive to the dust and or heat.
The best part of this is when these kids are on the field they, just for that brief time, are simply athletes being cheered on by their fans!
