MIRACLE FIELD / LEAGUE
The rules are simple:
Everyone hits. Everyone gets on base. Everyone crosses home plate.
The Miracle League of the YMCA at Pabst Farms gives kids ages 4+ with varying abilities the opportunity to get off the bench and get onto the field to enjoy the game of baseball. Athletes will learn the fundamental skills needed, and have the opportunity to practice, as well as take part in competitive game play.
Athletes with cognitive and/or physical disabilities are invited to join us to play on a custom-designed field featuring a cushioned, rubberized, completely flat surface, helping to erase barriers to recreation. All areas of the field, including the dugouts and changing rooms/restrooms, are universally accessible.

One of the most important elements of a Miracle League game is the “buddy” program. Each player is paired with a friend to assist them on and off the field during a two inning game. Player buddies must be 14 years or older. We ask that all interested applicants commit to the season to volunteer.
Please contact Jodi Dabrowski for information on how to get involved!
