The Miracle League spawned the idea to build a field with a special surface that was safe and easy to navigate for those with disabilities. A field was designed with a custom synthetic turf and handicapped accessible dugouts, restrooms and drinking fountains. This was the beginning of what is now called The Miracle League. The Miracle League is where physically and mentally challenged children are paired with able-bodied volunteer “buddies” who assist them in batting, catching, throwing and running. The child’s self esteem grows, he or she makes friends, becomes less isolated and “just becomes a regular kid playing baseball, not a kid with a disability.” Learn more
