VO5: The Miracle League of Michigan is an Easter Seals program here in Southfield that gives kids with mental and physical challenges the chance to play baseball as a team member in a real organized league. A pretty simple thing that normally these kids would never get the chance to do.

Steve Peck is the founder and director of the program and one of the extraordinary and caring people who every summer helps bring a real sense of joy and accomplishment to these special young athletes.
