Play

There are over 50,000 children ages 5-18 with disabilities less than 40 miles from our selected bar area Miracle League Site. These children do not have a field to play on. We are working to get our field built but hope to be planning games soon. Games played at the Miracle League will follow the following rules and guidelines.
