For more information on the Middle of the Mitt Miracle League, please visit www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/miraclefield

Middle of the Mitt Miracle League plays at the Midland Miracle Field, a universally-accessible soft surface baseball diamond that offers athletes of all ages with a cognitive or physical disability a safe and welcoming place to play ball without barriers. The rubberized surface of the 115’ diamond accommodates wheelchairs and assistive devices while helping to prevent injuries. Each athlete in the Miracle League is offered a community buddy: Someone who assists athletes on the field as they bat, run the bases, and field the ball, allowing parents and caretakers to cheer from the bleachers and enjoy the game. In a Miracle League game, everyone bats, everyone scores, and everyone wins! The Midland Miracle Field is located at 225 E. Nelson, Midland, MI 48640. 

A variety of volunteer positions are available on a weekly basis at the Miracle Field. Parks and Recreation is searching for coaches, buddies, and practice volunteers. To get involved, visit www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/miraclefield. Coaches must be at least 18 years of age and will require a background check. Volunteers and buddies must be at least 13 years of age.  

For additional information or assistance, call the Parks and Recreation office at 989-837-6930, available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., or email recreation@midland-mi.org.
