Jeffrey Koslowsky, of Advocate Brokerage of Scarsdale, has been named to the Board of Directors of Miracle League of Westchester.
The Miracle League of Westchester is a league for special needs children and adults that enables them to play baseball at a specially designed adaptive field. The Miracle League of Westchester was founded in 2006.
Miracle League was started in Conyers, Georgia in 1997, and since then Miracle Leagues have been started all over the country. The Westchester League was the first in New York State. This year started with 40 players five years ago, had a roster of 180 when the season started earlier this month. The adult program has signed up 500 players for its third season which will kick off on May 14.
The players enjoy the game with the help of an entirely flat rubberized field and more relaxed rules that ensure everyone has a good time. Everybody gets to bat in each inning, base runners are rarely called out; every player scores a run before the game is over (last one up usually scores a home run); and all games end in a tie. The field is also smaller so players can have the opportunity to hit the ball over the fence.
The most important rule is everyone has to have a good time.
Games are non-competitive in nature, with each player batting, running the bases and scoring each inning. Volunteers will be assigned to each individual to assist throughout the game. There are no losers in this game, only winners with the score tied at the end of each game. The focus is more on participation than on winning. The teams will have 12-15 players.
Advocate Brokerage is please to be part of this amazing an insurance agency in Scarsdale, N.Y., serving the needs of drivers and homeowners in the tri-state area, along with 40 other states across the country. It was founded 42 years ago by Rosalyn Binday.
