Welcome to The Miracle League of Stanislaus County
There is nothing more heartwarming than to see children playing America’s favorite pastime. But for children facing serious physical and mental disabilities, that opportunity isn’t always easy to achieve. Baseball diamonds are not exactly designed for athletes with wheelchairs or crutches in mind. With your help, we can remove these barriers and allows these special athletes to experience the joy of playing baseball.
Miracle League fields remove the obstacles that arise from the natural grass fields used in conventional youth facilities. Miracle League teams play on a custom-designed, rubberized surface field which will accommodate wheelchairs and other assistive devices. In other words, it levels the playing field where children can hit, run and catch – just as they envisioned in their dreams!
The Miracle League of Stanislaus County will provide a community outreach for volunteers from young and old to benefit from the action on the field. Through the “buddy” program, youth and community volunteers partner with our players to provide assistance and encouragement. The partnership benefits both sides as they share the great American pastime to find common ground and, most importantly, friendships.

“Thank you so much for supporting Miracle League. Miracle League has changed my family’s lives. We gather on Saturday mornings (mom, grandpa & grandma, aunts, uncles, cousins & friends) to experience the miracle of community. It boggles my mind and fills my heart when I look around to see all the community support that puts a smile on my son’s face. He is a part of a team. People cheer for him and celebrate his accomplishments. My friend said ‘It’s like going to church without dressing up.’ Thank you so much for being a part of creating this miracle for my family.” — Peace, Alana C.
