[ARCHIVED] Public Invited to Miracle Field Opening Day April 29

April 21, 2023 – It’s time to play ball! Midland residents and baseball fans across Michigan are invited to celebrate Opening Day 2023 of the Middle of the Mitt Miracle League on Saturday, April 29 at 10 a.m. at the Midland Miracle Field in midtown Midland, 225 E. Collins Street.  

The event will feature a “first pitch” by this year’s Guest of Honor Charlie Young from the Cincinnati Miracle League followed by a short performance from the Meister Singers. Games take place at 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and noon as the six Miracle League teams kick off the spring 2023 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!
