Physical therapists get pied for the Miracle League

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)-The physical therapists at the NEA Baptist Clinic took turns getting whip cream facials.

People lined up to let 10-year-old Cooper pie them in the face. This group has been working to raise money for the Miracle League.

Wendy Tyler, Cooper's mother, said Cooper has been in occupational, physical and speech therapy since he was about six weeks old and is excited about the new field.

"All kids should be able to play ball," she said. "No matter what the disability or whatever.  I can't wait to see the wheel chairs and the walkers and, of course, my baby running around those bases."

Jeff Ramsey, a physical therapist at NEA said he and his coworkers are thrilled to be a part of helping the Miracle League field become a reality.

"This is something that we believe in.  We think that the Miracle League gives hope to many, many young men and women as well as their parents and grandparents.  To see their kids perform and play baseball and softball.  We're just excited to be a part of this and to give back," said Ramsey.

They presented a check to the Miracle League for a little over $3,000.
