There's nothing like playing ball with your friends. It's a simple childhood pleasure, but one that can be challenging for kids with disabilities. That's why we've teamed up with two Pittsburgh sports legends and are thrilled to tell you about The Miracle League of Moon Township and their project to create "Miracles in Moon."

Our law firm, along with 4-time Super Bowl champ and black-and-gold superstar Rocky Bleier and celebrated Pittsburgh baseball coach and World Series champion Jim Leyland, are spreading the word about "Miracles in Moon." It's a baseball field and 9,500 square foot adaptive playground complete with a handicap-accessible restroom facility.

The public facility, located on Ewing Road in Moon Park, in Moon Township, allows individuals with disabilities to play baseball with their peers regardless of their ability. Edgar took part in the ball park's groundbreaking in October 2018, and first pitch is expected in spring 2019.

Now we need your help. We're looking for special athletes who love baseball. And we need volunteers to join our team. Registration will began in fall of 2018 for spring of 2019.

Interested in lending a hand? "Miracles in Moon" has opportunities both on and off the field for adult and youth volunteers alike. One of those opportunities is the "Buddy System," which will consist mainly of high school students who will mentor athletes and help with their participation in activities. More information on ways to get involved can be found at the non-profit's website.

If you'd prefer to make a monetary donation, one can be made online—the organization is a 501 (c)(3) organization.

"The lawyers and staff at Edgar Snyder & Associates are thrilled to support 'Miracles in Moon,'" said Attorney Edgar Snyder, founder and of counsel. "To play even a small role in helping children make memories playing baseball with their friends is something we're proud of—and passionate about."
