The Miracle League baseball field for individuals with physical or mental disabilities is reopening at Frank Brown Park on Thursday, March 28, after field replacement.
The Grand Re-Opening Game and Celebration is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the field with a short ceremony and scrimmage game between the ‘Twins’ and the ‘Phillies.’
Due to Hurricane Michael, the field suffered some damage but has now been repaired with an entirely new soft surface playing field.
The baseball field is a specially designed field made of a soft rubberized surface with painted bases and baselines which allows children in Bay County, ranging in ages from four and up, with physical or mental challenges, to play baseball safely.
Many players and their families have had to relocate out of Bay County due to damaged residences and limited health care facilities needed for their special needs children.
The league welcomes any special needs young person to register and come be a part of a real baseball team!
