Greater Iowa Credit Union Miracle League® Field

The Greater Iowa Credit Union Miracle League® Field will serve hundreds of baseball players with special needs, providing them the chance to experience America's favorite pastime.

The Miracle League removes the barriers which may prevent these aspiring athletes from playing baseball, such as natural grass fields used in conventional leagues. Miracle League teams play on a custom-designed, rubberized turf field that accommodates wheelchairs and other assistive devices while helping to prevent injuries.

But it’s more than playing a game. The Miracle League is about making new friends, building self-esteem and being treated just like other athletes. To help the athletes, the Miracle League uses a “buddy” system – pairing each player with an able-bodied peer. The result is a bond that cannot be described.
