The league has been making baseball dreams come true for players with special needs, especially when Steven Mongno takes his seat behind the mic.
"He's a little corny. He's a little quirky. The kids love him," said Steven's mother Elaine Mongno.

"The Miracle League had just lost an announcer to college so I decided, I am loud and obnoxious enough, I might as well try it out," said Steven.
