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 game 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.

Check out our sponsor section >>

One of the best parts about Kiwanis Miracle League is the concession stand–our hotdogs, walking tacos, and popcorn are the best!  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.  No admission charge.  Free parking.  Smiles abound.  Come out to a game this season!
