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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
