In the Miracle League, each player is paired with a buddy, creating a bond that transcends the game itself. Buddies provide support tailored to the individual needs of players, empowering them to showcase their abilities in an environment free from judgment or limitations. For parents and family members, watching their loved one take to the field, surrounded by a community that embraces and celebrates them, is a moment of profound pride and joy.

Every game is a celebration of achievement and friendship. With two innings packed with action, every player has the opportunity to bat and score a run, regardless of their skill level. The atmosphere is electric, with cheers echoing from the stands as players round the bases and teammates rally together.

What sets the Miracle League apart is its unwavering dedication to inclusivity. Here, there are no strikes, outs, or foul balls—just pure, unadulterated fun. Whether it’s your first time stepping onto the field or you’re a seasoned player, the Miracle League welcomes you with open arms. It’s not just a game; it’s a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the transformative power of community. Join us on the field, where every player is a champion and every game is a miracle in motion.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a buddy?2024-05-23T11:57:07+00:00

A Buddy is a volunteer, ages 12+ who will assist your player 1:1 during the games. Buddies offer support to your player, providing any physical assistance needed as well as encouragement, and acting as an intermediate if further assistance is required during the game.

Who can play?2024-04-08T12:02:51+00:00

There’s something about the game of baseball that lights up a player’s eyes. It’s an experience that everyone deserves. But for individuals facing physical or cognitive challenges, that opportunity is often unavailable or can be a difficult first step.

The Toyota Bluegrass Miracle League is a fully inclusive program. Anyone (age 5 and up) with a diagnosed disability or IEP/504 plan may be eligible to participate.

Should I purchase any baseball equipment?2024-04-05T19:41:42+00:00

All equipment is provided by the league for your athlete to borrow each game. If you would like to buy your athlete their own glove, bat, batting helmet, etc. you are welcome to do so!

Are there practices?2024-04-08T11:58:11+00:00

There are no practices at the Miracle League; however, the coaches may want to warm-up with your player before the game. This is why it is important to arrive 20 minutes prior to each game to be paired up with your Buddy and to get warmed up

What makes Miracle League so special?2024-04-08T12:01:46+00:00

The Miracle League field is specifically designed for individuals with physical and/or cognitive challenges. It is made with a rubberized surface that is wheelchair accessible. Bases and pitching mounds are painted on the surface so that there are no raised obstacles found on a typical baseball field. The “dugout” area is big enough to accommodate wheelchairs, and we have spectator seating areas behind home plate and adjacent to the player benches. The base paths, pitching, and outfield fence distances are a bit shorter than a typical Little League field.

When does the Miracle League season run?2024-04-08T12:04:22+00:00

The Toyota Bluegrass Miracle League offers spring and fall baseball seasons. Our spring season typically begins in April and concludes in late May. Our fall season typically begins on the weekend after Labor Day and runs until late October or early November. You will have to sign up for each season individually.

The Miracle League field is located at Shillito Park, 300 W Reynolds Rd, Lexington, KY 40503. Look for signage to the Cal Ripken and South Lexington  Baseball Complex. The field is located towards the back right of the complex.
