The Great Miami Valley Youth Miracle League

Our mission is to create accessible and healthy opportunities for special needs youth to be physically active and live their dream of playing baseball in a safe, fun, and accepting environment.

What is the Miracle League?

safe

At The Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields we remove the barriers that keep children with mental and physical disabilities off the baseball field. Since a main barrier for special needs children arises from the natural grass and dirt fields, Miracle League players play on a custom-designed, synthetic turf field that accommodates wheelchairs and other assertive devices while helping to prevent injuries for all players.

Friendship

We use a "Buddy" system - pairing each player with a peer or friend to assist them throughout the game. Each "Buddy" focuses on providing their teammate with an encouraging, safe environment in which their efforts produce success in each facet of the game. The result is a bond that forever connects them as teammates.

Fun!

The Miracle League is more than just playing a game, but it is also about making friends, building self-esteem, and being treated just like everyone else.

Our in-game experience is unlike any other! Players get to feel like they're in the "Big Leagues" with announcers, walk-up music, sound effects, live cameras and motion graphics all on huge LED video boards!

Community

This is not just a place that we go to on the weekends to relax and have a good time. This is a family, made up of hundreds of loving, caring, genuine people with one goal in mind...that "Every kid, with every challenge, gets every chance to play baseball"!

"The real joy comes from seeing these kids smile, Even the most [severely disabled] kids get something out of it, you know? And if you can just see them smile, it just tears you up. You know that you're going to be back, because it's like anything that you get joy from. And I think we get more out of than they do."

"Absolutely the most wonderful place to experience with special needs children. This is our second year my son TJ has played there!"
