The Miracle League program provides children and adults with physical limitations and other special needs the opportunity to play softball/baseball in a safe, fun atmosphere. The City of Irving and the Irving YMCA have partnered to provide this great program for children and families in our community. The Irving YMCA has a team of committed staff & volunteers that facilitate the program and raise funds to ensure the Miracle League will be free to all participants. Thanks to the Support of our Great Sponsors, Dr Pepper Snapple Group of Irving, Veterans United Foundation and Lehigh Hanson, Inc. Each child will receive a jersey as well as a medal and trophy upon completion of the season.
How Is The Game Played?
The Miracle League of Irving provides children with disabilities, regardless of their ability, the opportunity to play baseball. Each child dresses in an official uniform, makes plays in the field, and rounds the bases just like their peers.
However, the Miracle League is different from a regular youth league in several ways:
- Each player gets to bat and hit in each inning.
- Each player circles the bases and scores each inning.
- Each game ends in a tie.
It doesn't matter whether the child can hit a coach pitched ball, hit from a tee, or needs physical help swinging the bat... it doesn't matter whether the child can run the bases alone or needs someone to push their wheelchair home. The game is geared to the ability level of each child.
Where are games played?
All games are played at Cottonwood Creek Park located at 4051 N. Story Rd.
