NORTHWEST, AR Two northwest Arkansas baseball and softball teams, spent their Saturday afternoon to give back.

The youth teams raised more than $5,500 for the Miracle League, which is an organization for children with disabilities.

The league has a seven week season every fall and spring but this year, they got some unexpected supporters.

The Ozarka Naturals and The Knockouts’ approached the Miracle League in January with hopes to raise money to get more kids involved with the team.

“They went to their friends and family, door to door and raised funds, took pledges, and they raised over $5,500 for the Miracle League program in Northwest Arkansas,” said Peggy McCall of the Miracle League.

Executive Director, Peggy McCall says she was impressed with their hard work.

Saturday, the teams presented the Miracle League with a check and spent the day playing the final game of the season with the Miracle League’s players.

“Seeing the smile on their face, when they hit the ball, is just unbelievable. We can relate to it since we play baseball, having them come out, it’s just awesome,” said Karson Coffee of The Ozarka Naturals.

“It like melts my heart. At first when I stepped on the field, I thought I was about to start crying,” said Cally Kildow of The Knockouts.

The money raised will help pay for registration fees, jerseys, and metals for participants.
