Ridgeland Recreation & Parks, in partnership with the Miracle League of Central Mississippi, is currently taking registrations for the inaugural season of Miracle League baseball in Ridgeland.
The Miracle League is designed to give individuals with limited abilities the opportunity to play baseball in a safe, inclusive and welcome environment. We can accommodate all players by using adaptive equipment, such as a tee for hitting the baseball and Buddies for swinging the bat. The complex has accessible parking and restroom facilities.
The Miracle League Field is built using specialized rubber that is latex free, completely flat, and has no barriers; it allows easy access for wheelchairs, canes, walkers, crutches and prosthetic limbs. The dugouts will allow extra space for equipment as well as protective shade.
This league is designed for ages 5 & up and anyone who has developmental and/or physical challenges that prevent them from playing in a mainstream league. Children, youth and adults with disabilities will benefit from playing on the Miracle League Field.
Volunteers are needed and welcome to serve as “buddies” for players during games. Buddy training will be provided.
Registration will begin March 12th and continue through April 5th. The fee to participate is $25.00 which includes a player jersey and cap. For more information please call City of Ridgeland Recreation & Parks, 601-853-2011 or visit our website at www.ridgelandms.org.
