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.

Project Awareness And Special Sports

Together with high school and middle school volunteers, we work with participants to teach them the mechanics of sports and support recreational programs. What’s more, our volunteers socially engage participants developing long lasting bonds and relationships. Our coaches oversee participants and volunteers to help coordinate games and classes. Since its inception, PAASS has connected participants, volunteers, coaches, and parents together to build a community of support, awareness, and acceptance.
