August 5, 2022 – Midland Parks and Recreation is now accepting baseball player registrations, coaching applications, and volunteer registrations for the 2022 fall season of the Middle of the Mitt Miracle League. 

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 ball without barriers. The rubberized surface of the 115’ diamond accommodates wheelchairs and assistive devices while helping to prevent injuries. 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! The Midland Miracle Field is located at 225 E. Collins St, Midland, MI 48640.

Athlete registration is open now through Sunday, August 21. Athletes can register online at www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/miraclefield. League play will begin on Saturday, September 10. Games are played as a 4-week season on Saturdays. The league is open to all ages and there is no residency requirement. The cost to play in the Miracle Field is $20 per player. A limited number of scholarships are available. For more information on the Middle of the Mitt Miracle League, please visit www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/miraclefield.

A variety of volunteer positions are available on a weekly basis at the Miracle Field: coaches, buddies, and game-day volunteers are all needed to make this season a success! To get involved, visit www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/miraclefield. Coaches must be at least 18 years of age and will require a background check. Volunteers and buddies must be at least 12 years of age. 

For additional information or assistance, call the Parks and Recreation office at 989-837-6930, available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., or email recreation@midland-mi.org.
