Rattlers Players at Miracle League

Mike Woods has a column on a big night at the Miracle League last night.

Timber Rattlers players lend a helping hand with Miracle League of the Fox Valley
It's hard to believe a six-year-old could flash more skills on the diamond than a professional baseball player.

But I'm telling you, it's true. Meet Appleton's Theodore Van Domelen. He plays for the Twins. Weighs, oh, about 40 pounds. He was the bespectacled one wearing those John Lennon-style glasses with the hat that was a tad too big for his head Tuesday at John Wollner Fox Cities Miracle Field at Memorial Park.

You couldn't miss him. One minute he was collecting hits off Scooter Gennett of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, one of many who ended Gennett's prospects as a pitcher as he left with an ERA hovering around 90.00 after just two innings of work.

The next he was over commandeering the camera of the local newspaper photographer, helping him snap a few pictures. For good measure, he also did a little announcing and also held the hand of public address man Kirby Krueger, who apparently needed some love and support.
