MIRACLE LEAGUE BASEBALL
Miracle League Baseball is played on the first fully accessible baseball field in New England. The field is located on the corner of Trout Brook Dr. and Asylum Ave. in West Hartford. Since 2012 hundreds of children with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities have been able to enjoy America’s pastime in a safe and supportive atmosphere. Spring and Fall seasons are offered for children ages 4-21 on the rubberized surface field that has no raised obstacles.
MIRACLE LEAGUE FALL BASEBALL
The Miracle League of CT is all about adapting and adjusting, it’s what we do! With that in mind we are happy to announce that we will be offering Fall Baseball on the Miracle League field in West Hartford. We are adapting the program in ways that we believe will make it as safe as possible during the time of COVID-19.
Games will be played on Saturday afternoons at 1pm for the Minor League (ages 4-11) and at 3pm for the Major League (ages 12+) Below you will see some of the adaptations that we are making to make the games as safe as possible.. For the full plan please click on the link at the bottom of this page.
- As we normally do for Fall Ball we will not be making team assignments but will choose teams each week before the game begins.
- Each game will be limited to a total of 20 players (10 on each team).
- In order to eliminate an entire level of COVID-19 transmission, we will not have volunteers to assist the players. If a player requires assistance it must be provided by a family member.
- No one will be admitted onto the field except for players, their family member helpers, and Miracle League staff.
- All adults must wear a face covering, players are encouraged to wear one also if they can.
- There will be temperature checks each week. Anyone with a temperature above 100˚ will not be allowed to participate that day.
Games will begin on Saturday 9/12 in on the Miracle League field in West Hartford and will conclude on Saturday October 24th. Because things have been (and remain to be) so uncertain, we have decided that we will not be ordering t-shirts this season for the players. They are encouraged to wear a jersey from a past season or whatever they are comfortable playing in.
