The Miracle League is about making new friends, building self-esteem and being treated like an athlete. To help the athletes, The Miracle League uses a “buddy” system, resulting in a beautiful bond between the player and an able-bodied peer.
For people with varying disabilities, playing baseball on a conventional grass field can be a barrier. Issues can arise in many areas, from having trouble navigating the field while using their assisted devices to sensitivity to actual grass itself.
The Miracle League teams play on a custom-designed, rubberized turf ﬁeld that accommodates wheelchairs and other assisted devices while helping to prevent injuries and considering sensory issues.
