There’s just something about baseball that lights up a kid’s eyes! It’s an experience that every kid deserves…and through the Miracle League it’s an experience that every kid can enjoy. The Miracle League is a baseball program for kids with physical and developmental disabilities. The Miracle League offers these special kids the opportunity to break through the perceived boundaries of their disabilities, while making new and lasting friendships and having fun.

The Miracle League has three special rules:

  • Every player gets a hit
  • Every player gets on base
  • Every player scores

Kids with special needs aren’t the only ones who benefit: Through the Volunteer Buddies program, able-bodied members of the community are partnered with Miracle League players to provide playing assistance, encouragement and friendship.

Ages: Kids with physical and developmental disabilities, 3 – 19 years old

Where: Games are played on the Rotary Miracle Field, located at the Kenosha YMCA’s Callahan Family Branch. Custom-designed, with a cushioned synthetic turf surface, the Miracle Field accommodates wheelchairs and walking assistance devices.

You can help…Be a volunteer buddy: Children with special needs are not the only ones who benefit
from this league! Through the “volunteer buddies” program, able-bodied members of the community will be
partnered with players to provide assistance, encouragement and friendship. Individuals interested in becoming a
volunteer buddy should complete a Y volunteer application; available at the YMCA Member Service Desk. *Please
note: A background check is required for all YMCA volunteers over 18.
