Kyle M. Eagle Project…. mark your calendar


A number of our 17 year scouts are wrapping up in a fast and furious manner as they complete the requirements for Eagle Rank.  With one down this year so far and three more on the near horizon it is my pleasure to announce that Kyle M.’s Eagle Project, which is scheduled for February 23rd from 11 am to 3 pm.  Kyle’s project is a community awareness event that will be held at the Miracle League of Arizona baseball field, which is located at 11130 East Cholla Street in Scottsdale (near the intersection of Frank Lloyd Wright and Via Linda Blvd).


The Miracle League of Arizona ( is a non-profit organization in North Scottsdale, dedicated to providing a safe, successful and enjoyable baseball experience for children, teens and adults with disabilities or special health care needs.  MLAZ uses an adaptive baseball environment in an accessible stadium in which barriers are removed that would normally keep individuals off the baseball field.  Athletes are placed in a League based upon their age and skill level.  They are matched with a “buddy” who is a one-on-one friend and helper.  Games are success oriented and athletes are encouraged to do as much as they can on their own with the buddies there to assist with the rest.  The impressive facility has a custom designed rubberized turf to allow easy maneuverability for wheelchairs and other devices and a long list of other additions to accommodate the players.


With that as a bit of background I strongly encourage you to come out and learn more about MLAZ and use this opportunity to spread the word to those you may know who have an athlete who might be interested or a buddy who could assist.  Those of us who are “buddies” will be in our yellow shirts and available to answer questions.   Please contact Kyle with any questions and hope to see you on the 23rd at 11 am to take in a couple of hot dogs and learn a thing or two about this great organization!
