Any child with disabilities ages 5 to 20 years old will be eligible to play Miracle League baseball. Games are played on a custom field with a flat, rubberized surface to help prevent injuries. In games every player bats once each inning, all players are safe on the bases, and every player scores a run.
In addition, Buddies are provided for each player. Buddies are students and adults that work one-on-one with each player. Buddies will help their players bat, catch the ball, and round the bases.
The 2022 Spring Season will begin on April 23, with no games played on Memorial Day weekend. All games will be played on Saturday mornings at the Will Norton Miracle Field located at the Joplin Athletic Complex. The Will Norton Miracle Field is fully accessible for individuals with any type of disability and is located next to a fully accessible playground. There are no team practices during the week.
Cost for each player is $25 per season. We also ask that all players complete a Player Bio Form so we can insure the best possible experience.
Spring Adult League will also begin on Saturday, April 23, with no games played on Memorial Day weekend.
