May 6, 2022 – It’s time to play ball! Midland residents and baseball fans across Michigan are invited to celebrate the Grand Opening Day of the Middle of the Mitt Miracle League on Saturday, May 14, 2022 at 11 a.m. at the Midland Miracle Field in midtown Midland, 225 E. Nelson Street. 

The event will feature a formal ribbon cutting ceremony with remarks from local officials and dignitaries, as well as a performance by the Midland Center for the Art’s Men of Music and other activities. The day will conclude with the “first pitch” and an exhibition game for the four new Miracle League teams to kick off the Spring 2022 Middle of the Mitt Miracle League season.

A Miracle Field is 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 baseball without barriers. The rubberized surface of the 115’ diamond accommodates wheelchairs and assistive devices while helping to prevent injuries. And what’s more exciting is that each athlete 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!
