The Miracle League
The first Miracle League field opened in Conyers, Georgia in April 2000. The complex included a custom-designed field with a cushioned rubberized surface to help prevent injuries, wheelchair accessible dugouts, and a completely flat surface to eliminate any barriers to wheelchair-bound or visually impaired players.
“Buddies” assist Miracle League players. These buddies are mainstream children who play baseball, youth church groups, boys and girls scouts to mention a few. As a result the parents, children and volunteers are all brought together — special needs and mainstream alike — in a program which serves them all through service to children with special needs.
