Giving Ability a Chance
There is something about playing the game of baseball that lights up everyone’s eyes, but for anyone facing physical and mental challenges, that opportunity can often be a difficult first step. The Miracle League gives these players the opportunity to get out in the sunshine, and enjoy playing the game of baseball as a team member in an organized league. It is the first of its kind in our area and will serve everyone across east and central Alabama, and surrounding areas.
Children/Young adults 5yrs+ and adults of all ages can register starting around January of every year until the end of the baseball season. All mental and physical challenges are welcome. Each season's events begin near the end of March and continues for approximately eight (8) Saturdays. A week before Opening Day the Miracle League holds "Jersey Day" - a day where players can pick up uniforms and meet their coaches. Detailed information for each season will be updated on our Facebook page and on website as each occasion nears.
The Miracle Field of East Alabama project is not only a baseball field, but it includes an entire environment suited for special needs youth and ball players. The field itself has a rubberized synthetic turf allowing wheelchairs and walkers to glide unrestricted in addition to the accessible dugouts and bleachers. The environment encompasses a control center with wheelchair and walker accessible restrooms & water fountains, an all accessible press box, a special needs accessible playground, and a pavilion for family and community fellowship.
