The Fort Myers Miracle lived up to its team name.

The minor leaguers opened their heart and their home turf to some very special sluggers.

"I'm having a blast," said Brett Walker, who plays for the Miracle.  "Definitely a fun opportunity to come out here and be with all these kids."

Every year, children with special needs come to Hammond Stadium for Disability Dream Day.

"He looks forward to it every year and just has an absolute blast," says Bill Adams, who attends with his son, Billy Jr., every year.  "Baseball is his number-one sport.  This is his number-one team."
Adams says Dream Day brings out the best in his son.

"He just is in awe with (the players), loves playing with them  and this event that they put on is so good to these kids."

The event is hosted by the Dave Clark Foundation, founded by former professional baseball player Dave Clark, who has battled with his own disabilities since childhood.

"To expand their horizons and try to present a day that not only lasts for one day, but maybe the rest of their life, they can get some success and confidence out here and it translates over in every day life," Clark said.

Billy Jr. was invited to throw the first pitch at Saturday's Miracle game.
