Every Child Deserves a Chance to Play Baseball!
History of The Miracle League
The Original Miracle League. Miracle League baseball began in Conyers, Georgia, in 1998 when the Rockdale Youth Baseball Association invited children with unique abilities to play on a typical baseball field. That first season, on a grass and dirt field, 140 players came out to play baseball. The Miracle League has been growing ever since!
By the second season, a new type of field was developed just for Miracle League athletes. It’s a custom-designed field with a cushioned, rubberized surface.
This makes it a little bit easier for special needs players to get from base to base.
The Miracle League believes that Every Child Deserves a Chance to Play Baseball. There are currently 240+ Miracle League organizations in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada serving more than 200,000 children and adults with unique abilities.
Our Mission Is To:
•Provide opportunities for children with disabilities to play Miracle League baseball, regardless of their abilities.
•Promote community support and sponsorship of the Miracle League.
•Promote the construction of special facilities that meet the unique needs of Miracle League players and their families.
We cannot change or cure the medical issues life has dealt children with disabilities.
What we can do is provide them with an opportunity to experience the joy and
benefits that come from playing our national pastime–baseball.
