The Miracle League of Stanislaus County announced today that they are currently accepting signups for Modesto’s fall season. Opening Day will take place on Saturday, September 7th at Miracle Field located near the corner of Pelandale Avenue and Tully Road, next to Big Valley Grace Church. The Miracle League of Stanislaus County provides children with physical and intellectual disabilities the opportunity to play baseball in an organized league here in Modesto. Miracle League teams play on a custom-designed, rubberized surface field which accommodates wheelchairs and other assistive devices, giving children the opportunity to hit, run and catch, just as they envisioned in their dreams! Miracle League does not just benefit children who have a disability; it also teaches community service to our youth as each child is paired with a buddy in order to assist with their unique needs. Player registration for the fall season is available now. Games for the 2019 fall season will take place each Saturday for six weeks beginning September 7th through October 19th, with a Bye Week on Sept 28th (no games).
