Kids with special needs will be ready to play ball this spring thanks to a generous donation from El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser and his wife, Lisa Leeser.

Leeser donated his monthly salary of $2,500 to the Miracle League of El Paso.  Miracle League is a non-profit organization that gives kids with mental or physical challenges an opportunity to play on a baseball team.

The money will pay for new equipment.

"It's incredible, the feeling that I have right now, it's hard to even explain. The hugs and the smiles I get today are hard to replace. You can't put a value on them," said Leeser, following the donation Saturday.

Leeser made a commitment to donate his monthly salary as mayor to different charity groups in El Paso.
