SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Making a positive impact in the community is a cornerstone of the Torero baseball program and for the fifth consecutive year, the team hosted a skills clinic for the Miracle League of San Diego this past Sunday at Engel Family Field in San Dieguito Park.

As student-athletes, they have the chance to positively affect the lives of youth and this was first and foremost a service trip. The entire USD baseball team volunteered to help children with special needs through skill stations such as batting, base running, throwing, fielding, and catching. To be able to influence, impact and help kids develop through encouraging and fun experiences with baseball this opportunity with the Miracle League was both enjoyable and humbling.

Senior infielder Connor Joe stated, "The best part about hosting a skills clinic was seeing how much fun the kids were having and looking around to see all the smiling faces".

USD Athletics and its Toreros Linking to the Community (TLC) programs present student athletes continuous opportunities to engage in service experiences, to personally grow and learn from others while providing public service to the to the youth, families and community of San Diego. The Miracle League and Torero baseball team have turned out to be an excellent match.

The Miracle League of San Diego is a charitable organization that provides special needs children with mental or physical challenges the opportunity to fulfill their dreams of playing baseball. The custom-designed field they play on is completely flat with a cushioned, rubberized surface to accommodate wheelchair-bound or visually impaired players and is Southern California's only field designed specifically to accommodate participants with special needs.
