Courage Award

The “Courage Award” was established in 2015 in honor of our late friend and dedicated member of the Miracle League family, Mr. Chris Anderson.  Chris succumbed to his battle with melanoma in September 2015 but not without a valiant fight against the disease, demonstrating courage, faith, hope and love every day of his life. The Courage Award is awarded to a Miracle League player that possesses all the same attributes as our dear friend Chris, exhibiting all the traits of a true champion.


Congratulations to Angel for being the first “Courage Award” recipient in November 2015.  Angel is a living example of courage, soaring spirit, contagious motivation, strength and serves as an inspiration to us all.

High Five Award

The Chris Anderson “High Five” Scholarship was formed in 2015 after Chris’ tireless dedication to the Miracle League players, their families and the volunteers when he lost his fight against cancer.  This scholarship was formed in honor Chris and his love of the game.

The “High Five” scholarship is awarded to a graduating High School student or currently enrolled college student who demonstrates a commitment to service within his or her community through volunteerism with the Miracle League of Arkansas.  The recipient has shown to be caring, compassionate and dedicated just as Chris was and one who routinely demonstrates selflessness and humility through the act of giving of their time.

The Miracle League Playground is Complete!

The playground at the Little Rock field is completed. Construction started in July 2011 and was completed in time for the fall season. Our playground features a toddler and belt swings, two roller coaster swings, a platform swing that a wheelchair can roll up on, an Omni spinner which is a super cool merry – go – round and a roller slide for a fun ride. The playground is a huge addition to the game day experience at the Miracle League complex. Players and their families are arriving early and staying late for their game for the added extra play time where the equipment and area work for them and not against.

A very special thanks to those that make this happen for our kids. The sponsors for this project are: Cliff and Kristen Lee, Riley’s Warriors, Grace & Essa Alley, Toni & Ron Lazenby, Bale Honda, Janet & Sam Alley, Frank & Emily Smith, Gary Smith, VCC, Darek & Shelley Braunecker, Kyle Holmes, Kerry Ellison, Brad Davis, Greg Oaks, Cal Biggers, JC Halsell, Mitzi & Larry Choate, Louise & Roy Gutierrez, Bill McPherson, Pulaski Heights Masonic Lodge, Raouf & Tamara Kassissieh, Haitham Alley, David Parker, Phillip & Louis Cox, Samual Carter, Bancorp South, Matthew & Shannon Karpoff, Mary Ellen Vangilder, Philip Miron, Wade & Clair Alley, John Fogleman, Kim Brockington, JCS Construction, RP Power Little Rock City Parks and Recreation, Matthew & Patricia Jones, Redstone Construction, Rob Veon and crew, Team General Contracting, Southern Star Concrete, Granite Mountain Quarry, Fleming Electric, and Total Landscape Solutions.

Grant the Drummer


Meet Grant.

He’s an amazing drummer and one of our favorite athletes.

Check him out in action below.

Get inspired by one of the colest drummers I know. 

Often, as a journalist, I meet people who warm my heart, broaden my mind, and enliven my spirit: but none more so lately, than 12-year-old Grant Leslie.

Leslie was born with a rare muscular disease that makes it almost impossible for him to bend his limbs and his joints. Doctors believed he’d never walk. Grant proved them all wrong and then some. He’s the coolest kid, funny and smart, swims like a fish, bats on the ball-field like Babe.

But even as just a pre-teen, it’s clear: he’s found his calling. Grant is phenomenal on the drums. He only began playing about a year ago, introduced by the video-game Rock Band. Now, there’s no dispute. He’s been gifted with a raw talent, a true passion for playing.

Reporting on his story was my pleasure. Grant Leslie is my inspiration.

Oh, and his parents are truly great too. Humble, sincere, grateful people. No wonder where Grant got it.
