The Miracle League of Mauldin kicked off its 2014 season Saturday at Sunset Park.

It's a group of children with disabilities who play in a softball league and get to experience being part of a team, just like their peers.

They meet weekly and even get a chance to play with Reedy and the Greenville Drive at the end of the season.

"What gives us the biggest reward is to find a child that had no clue that we have this program and to bat for the first time and to run around the bases for the first time and have a grin from ear to ear when they cross home plate," explained Mauldin Mayor Dennis Raines. "It's a great experience."

The Mauldin Miracle League is in its tenth year.
