There's something about the game that lights up a child's eyes. And, through the Miracle League, it's an experience that every child can enjoy along side their peers. It is an amazing program for the entire family!
Teams play one game per week. The season is 7-8 weeks long and teams follow either a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday schedule. Games are played at 5:30pm and 7:00pm at the John Wollner Fox Cities Miracle League Field in Memorial Park, Appleton.
Every game is two innings long. The rules are simple - everyone hits, everyone gets on base, everyone crosses home plate! The games start with the National Anthem and end with congratulatory high fives.
Games are played at the John Wollner Fox Cities Miracle Field in Memorial Park, Appleton. The field is custom designed and fully accessible allowing every player the opportunity to be successful. The field provides a level playing field where players can hit, run, and be part of a team.
The league’s volunteers give families the freedom to just be fans. Each player is accompanied by a community volunteer (buddy) on the field to assist and encourage the player. The league assigns a buddy to each player for the season or families can provide their own buddy based on the athlete’s needs. This is a one-to-one pairing that will last for the entire season. This partnership will benefit both the player and the buddy – they’ll share the love of baseball and most importantly, create a lasting friendship.
The cost to participate is $45 per athlete, which includes a major league look-a-like team jersey, baseball cap, professional team photo, end of season award and player insurance. Team sponsors and scholarship donors help defray the cost for any family that may have a hardship in paying the registration fee. No player will be turned away for the inability to pay.
