Karlee Thomas tries out a batting machine developed by the organization "May We Help" along with GE Aviation.
The machine is designed provide players who can't swing a bat with the opportunity to get into the batters box and smack a baseball with just the touch of a button.
A safety interlock is held by a helper, or official, (seen center) to prevent injury to anyone teeing up the ball or approaching the plate before the batter actually "swings"
A huge debt of gratitude is due the great people from May We Help and GE Aviation.
Thank you guys!

Board Member Doug Coates
"Pitching For Success"
To Fans at Joseph Beth Book Signing
Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields board member Doug Coates is seen at left introducing his book "Pitching For Success" to fans at a recent Joseph Beth Booksellers book-signing event.
Doug's book has great interest for children and points up the effects that character has on personal development in children. Points demonstrated in the book are largely those championed by Joe Nuxhall in his efforts to promote character traits that lend themselves to life challenges and success.
Joe Nuxhall Miracle League board member Doug Coates recently published a book entitled "Pitching for Success: Character Lessons, The Joe Nuxhall Way"and he has graciously decided to donate part of the profits from his book to the Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields.
Discussing the book, Doug said, "The book attempts to get kids to understand that good character can be the best determinant of popularity and that you can still be 'one of the guys' even if you have to ride the bench once in a while."
If you want a great demonstration of how character can effect a child's popularity you'll want your youngster to read "Pitching for Succcess".
You can buy the book online by clicking the book cover's image at right. That will take you to the publisher's web site.
The "May We Help" organization has generously offered to engineer a batting machine for kids and adults with limited range of motion. The machine will allow people to actuate a device that actually bats the baseball.
May We Help is a nonprofit organization in Cincinnati, Ohio that recruits skilled engineers to help develop customized devices to assist people with physical or mental disabilities. These devices help individuals in need to engage and experience a better quality of life.
We can't wait to see what the wonderful engineers and techs at GE come up with and we can't possibly find a way to express our gratitude.
We'll keep you posted as we learn more about this wonderful project's progress.
