Tim McGarry happened upon an HBO television show depicting special-needs children playing baseball on a unique cushioned field in Georgia. Tim called HBO and was put in touch with Diane Alford, the executive director of the original Miracle League in Conyers, Georgia. You see, Tim loves baseball and holds a special love in his heart for special-needs children since his brother Rory lived with a birth defect during his lifetime.
Simultaneously a different gentleman, Sal Cordaro, saw the same HBO program and was pursuing the same opportunity through Diane Alford with the original Conyers, Georgia Miracle League. Sal too loved baseball and wanted his son Aaron, who has Asperger’s Syndrome to experience the same joy and excitement of playing baseball as the children in Georgia.
Diane put Tim and Sal in contact with each other and the rest, as they say, “is history”.
