BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — An emotional sea of parents celebrated the League of Dreams last baseball games of the season Sunday afternoon.
Along with the other excited parents in attendance was father and league coach Darrin Wonderly, who enjoys game time with his 7-year-old daughter Kimber.
"It makes me happy as a parent to see my daughter, and at the same time I am the coach," he said. "I get a chance to see all the other kids having fun."
Just a few weeks ago, vandals broke into the field and wrote hateful messages on the walls of the teams' dugouts. The walls are not all cleaned off, and they are looking forward to repainting the dugout entirely.
The League of Dreams is an adaptive sports league for athletes with physical and developmental disabilities.
Sunday, they wrapped up the last games of the season while the Sabbath Keepers Ministries joined them in a fundraiser.
