The Miracle League of Fond du Lac

Although funding still is being secured, the Miracle League site is set!

 

In February 2017, Fond du Lac City Council approved a resolution authorizing a Memorandum of Understanding between the city and Brooke Industries, Inc. to support a Miracle League of Fond du Lac Chapter. The Miracle League Complex will be constructed at Plamore Park, located at Division and Seymour streets.

 

 

Brooke Industries, Inc. embarked on a capital campaign to raise funds for the design and construction of a Miracle League complex in Fond du Lac. The complex will include a custom-designed field with a cushioned rubberized surface to allow players with wheelchairs, walkers, and other mobility devices to safely move from base to base. The design also includes wheelchair accessible dugouts, wide walkways, a parking lot, sheltered concession stand with specialized seating, all accessible family restrooms, scoreboard, bleacher seating, and a water retention pond.

The main focus of this complex is the creation and development of the baseball field with a cushioned rubberized turf to help prevent injuries while still providing a surface that is solid enough for wheelchairs and walkers to navigate. Completely barrier-free, the environment is designed to allow accessibility inside and outside the dugout by eliminating any obstacles for wheelchairs, walkers, and visually impaired players.

 

Estimated project cost is $1,030,826.00. Construction is planned to begin once the funding is secured. Thus far, we have “rounded 1st base,” which is $275,000 raised to date, primarily from service organizations, individual donors, and corporations.  Hard work, dedication and support from our community of businesses and families will help write the history of The Miracle League of Fond du Lac .

 


A Miracle…

If we were to tell you about an organized baseball league, you might call it ordinary.

 

If we were to tell you the athletes have special needs, you might call it touching.

 

If you were to see them play, you would call it a Miracle!
