With the motto, “Every child deserves a chance to play baseball,” the Miracle League strives to give kids and adults a chance in the batter's box, particularly young adults and children with mental and physical disabilities.

Three Miracle Leagues in the region have teamed to offer centralized online registration for players and volunteers to schedule games at fields in the South Hills, Cranberry and Murrysville.

The website is www.miracleleaguebaseball.org.

The specially made Miracle Fields are all-weather and obstacle-free to help prevent injuries to players and allow those in wheelchairs to move around regardless of weather.

Participants must be 5 years or older and the cost to participate is $30, though the league is willing to work with players and parents so that everyone has a chance to play.

For more details on the South Hills league, visit www.miracleleaguesouthhills.org, for southwestern Pennsylvania visit www.mlswpa.org and for Western Pennsylvania visit www.miracleleaguewpa.org.
