Kiwanis Miracle League


HOPE YOU HAD A HAPPY
4th of JULY HOLIDAY

BREAKING NEWS:  Unfortunately, our board had to make the decision to  cancel our 2020 Fall Season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Like our decision to cancel our Spring Season, we had to keep the health and safety of our players, families, coaches, and volunteers first and foremost in our minds. 

But watch for a special event or two that we will allow us to be socially distanced and safe! 

WE HOSTED OUR FIRST EVER DRIVE THROUGH to take the place of 2020 Spring Opening Day!

While we’ve had to cancel our 2020 Spring Season, it doesn’t mean that we can’t have a good time at the ball park, right?
Nearly 80 players/families joined us for our first ever Kiwanis Miracle League “DRIVE THROUGH” on Saturday, May 9th.  While it wasn’t “opening day” as we typically know it, all seemed to have a good time!  For most, it just felt good to be near the ball park!
Players wore their uniforms!  They stayed in their cars.  Coaches gave them a “socially distanced” high five!  Our PA Guy announced their names on the PA System!  Cubby Bear!  Shrine Clowns!  DM Fire Truck!  DM Police and squad car! And each player took home a special treat from our KML board of directors.
Teams came through under a schedule:
1-1:30 PM           A’s, Brewers, Cardinals, Cubs
1:30-2 PM           Dodgers, Marlins, Mets, Nationals, Orioles
2-2:30 PM           Phillies, Pirates, Red Sox, Royals
2:30-3 PM           Tigers, Twins, White Sox, Yankees, any unassigned players
We, of course, adhered to the current health guidelines.  We want and continue to want everyone to stay safe.

What we do

Kiwanis Miracle League is truly a miracle as it provides a place for children with special needs to enjoy our nation’s pastime, Baseball.

But it is truly so much more than that. It is an opportunity for families to come together and enjoy the great outdoors and the spirit of competition. Or at least what WE call competition. You see, everyone bats, everyone scores and every came ends in a tie.

We also have space for dedicated volunteers, our “buddies” who help our players get the most out of the experience. Groups and individuals from all walks of life have volunteered to be buddies or our youngsters and we welcome you as well.  Click on “Volunteer” to learn more!

We also have been blessed with great supporters and financial donations to keep the field running.

One of the best parts about Kiwanis Miracle League is the concession stand and every player enjoys a free drink after the game. Our players LOVE that!

But most of all, Kiwanis Miracle League is something you must experience for yourself. Come out to a game this season!
