The Miracle League was formed as a youth baseball league for children with special needs. It offers these children an opportunity to suit up in a uniform, step up to the plate, and enjoy playing the game of baseball in its purest form. This is a dream most of them would not be able to realize as members of a traditional youth league.
There is something about playing the game of baseball that lights up a youngsters eyes. But for children facing serious disabilities, that opportunity can often be difficult to achieve. Baseball diamonds weren't exactly designed with wheelchairs and crutches in mind. It was the goal and dream of the Rotary Club of Monroe to build Rotary Field, a unique ballpark designed to accommodate the needs of children with disabilities.
In 2007 Rotary Club of Monroe's program caught the attention of our local branch of the Snohomish County YMCA. They have adopted the program (from an administration standpoint), because it's bigger than Rotary Club of Monroe ever dreamed it would be, and they can expand the sports offerings to our kids--not just baseball!
The Miracle League Baseball Program is open to kids of all ages with all types of disabilities. Everybody hits, everybody gets on base, and everybody scores--- every inning!
