WHAT IS THE MIRACLE LEAGUE OF LOUISVILLE?
The Miracle League of Louisville is a baseball league and complex for children with physical, cognitive, and/or emotional disabilities. This one-of-a-kind, fully-inclusive complex will allow children of all abilities to safely play baseball in an organized league. Our Miracle League field will feature a specially designed, rubberized surface designed to prevent injuries and accommodate wheelchairs, walkers, and other devices. It also allows sufficient cushioning to aid in injury prevention should a player fall. The field and dugouts are barrier-free and completely flat. The adjacent playground and splash-pad will bring children, families and the community to the Miracle League for a common goal…to play together.
There are currently 300 other United States Miracle Leagues
United States Miracle Leagues make it possible for 250,000+ children with physical, cognitive and/or emotional disabilities to play baseball. We want to bring the same opportunities to families in Louisville so wheelchairs, walkers, safety concerns, physical and cognitive challenges will no longer keep them from playing a game that we all love.
Without our sponsors the Miracle League and the dream of a Miracle League Field would not be possible. Not only do we say thank you but we ask that everyone support each sponsor and let them know you appreciate their efforts and commitment to the Miracle League.

Raised So far
“So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.”
– Christopher Reeve
In partnership with the Building Industry Association of Greater Louisville, we are proud to announce that construction has started on the Miracle League of Louisville baseball field and Delta Dental® Miracle Playground at Fern Creek Park. The Miracle League offers opportunities for children with disabilities that preclude them from playing in a traditional baseball league to be part of a team and play baseball with other children in a safe and fun environment.
Demolition of the existing field and site preparation for the new fully-accessible baseball field and playground will continue over the next few months. The game-ready accessible field surface and spectacular playground equipment will be installed in the spring with a grand opening planned in time for baseball season 2019.read more
