What is the Miracle League?
It's hope, determination and a display of human spirit that is unequaled. And of course… there's baseball. The "why" behind the Miracle League: Every child deserves the chance to play ball.
The Betty and Bobby Allison Miracle League Ball Field is a custom-designed barrier-free ball field where players of all ages and abilities can hit, run, catch and play ball. The field is specially equipped with a cushioned synthetic surface that allows players utilizing wheelchairs and walkers to move unrestricted and without fear of injury.
In additions to our numerous community sponsors and donors, this project is facilitated by the Springfield-Greene County Park Board and supported by the Rotary Club of Springfield North and the Community Foundation of the Ozarks.
It is with great community support and excitement that we are able to bring you the Betty and Bobby Allison Miracle League Ball Field.
The Miracle League serves children and adults with disabilities. We use a "Buddy" system, pairing each player with a volunteer buddy who may assist in hitting, running, catching - or just cheering on! The result is a bond which simply cannot be described. The Miracle League is all about making new friends, building self-esteem and the joy of playing ball. Download our brochure for more information.
The Miracle League Ball Field will serve the community for many years to come!
