Miracle League of East Texas has an official website

Longview Texas is getting a new baseball field that is more than just a baseball field... it is a field of dreams. Baseball diamonds weren’t exactly designed with wheelchairs and crutches in mind. The Miracle League of East Texas will remove the barriers that keep children with mental and physical disabilities off the baseball field and let them experience the joy of America’s favorite pastime. Since the main barriers for these children arise from the natural grass fields used in conventional youth leagues, Miracle League teams play on a custom-designed, rubberized turf field that accommodates wheelchairs and other assistive devices while helping to prevent injuries.

This is a wonderful addition to the City Parks and Leisure department. To donate, sponsor and to find out more about the Miracle League of East Texas go to the website, www.miracleleagueofeasttexas.com.
