What is the Miracle League at Cypress Mounds?

The Miracle League at Cypress Mounds is a non-profit organization that makes it possible for children with mental and physical disabilities to achieve the same dream as their healthy peers – to play baseball as part of a team in an organized league!  These children get a reprieve from their daily challenges as soon as they step or roll onto the ball field.

The location of our field within the Ripken-designed baseball complex at Cypress Mounds allows our players to experience so much more than just Miracle League baseball.  They play the game alongside 9 other fields of Little League players and are a part of the baseball community.  The field closely mimics all other fields at Cypress Mounds with features such as warning tracks, foul poles, custom-designed dugout benches and helmet and bat racks.  It has a cushioned synthetic turf with painted bases and baselines that allows children in wheelchairs and walkers to glide unrestricted to their positions without fear of injury.  In other words, it provides a level playing field where children with physical and mental disabilities can hit, run, and catch – just as they envisioned in their dreams!
