Founding Teen Ambassadors

Emerson “EJ” Arnold

Class of 2018 – WCTA

Congratulations and THANKS to our very first Miracle League Ambassador, EJ Arnold! EJ helped put the Ambassador Program together, and has made several promotional appearances on behalf of Miracle League. He has always been a Miracle League Buddy for the past few years, but in Spring 2017, he took on added responsibility as one of the team coaches for the Yankees.

Way to go, Coach EJ!!!

John Howard Bobo

John Howard Bobo, or as he is known to his baseball coaches and teammates, Bobo #99, is a 15-year old freshman at Basic Academy who has been volunteering in the Buddy program since he was 12 years old.  For the last (8) seasons, he has been proud to work hard and earn the money ($750/season) to personally sponsor the amazing athletes of the Miracle League Cardinals team.

Our Newest Teen Ambassadors

Kendall Chandler

Class of 2022 – Bishop Gorman High School

Kendall has been an amazing volunteer for several years. She began as a Miracle League Buddy every Saturday during our Spring 2018 season, then took on added responsibility as our advanced LED scoreboard/Audio Systems operator.   In this role, she ran the scoreboard graphics, played all the songs, created special graphics “on the fly”, and somehow even coordinated our post-game raffles at the same time!  Kendall has taken on this crucial game-day role every game, every Saturday, and every season for 2 years, before heading off to college at UNLV.  Without a doubt, Kendall helped make our new scoreboard a smashing success!

Way to go, Kendall!!!
