Baseball is a big deal all over Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin!  Going to watch the Minnesota Twins, Chicago Cubs, White Sox, Milwaukee Brewers, Saint Paul Saints, and the Iowa Cubs, even the Rochester Honkers, is an amazing experience.  But, playing the game of baseball yourself is an American pastime that so many love.  Unfortunately, when the field isn't in great condition you sometimes can't play and right now, that is the reality at Miracle Field in Rochester, Minnesota.

$200,000 Needed to Restore the Miracle Field in Rochester, Minnesota

If you've ever gone to a baseball game with your kids with RYBA or for high school sports, you know the fields can sometimes be pretty wet.  They also have a few different terrains - everything from grass, to a gravel type of rock, and even a mound that sits up a little bit higher.  Now imagine your child, who absolutely loves the game of baseball and can't wait to play, but his wheelchair can't handle the rough terrain of the field and so he can only watch his friends from the side during their games.

That was the reality for many in the Rochester community until 2006 when Miracle Field was born.  This field welcomes everyone and provides all abilities the opportunity to learn and play the game of baseball.

Sadly, the field has seen some wear and tear throughout the years and at the moment is not able to be used due to safety concerns.  Large cracks have formed on the surface and the field needs to be resurfaced.

Rochester, Minnesota Athletes Need a Miracle for Their Field!

The Miracle Field in Rochester, Minnesota needs a miracle!

Back in 2006, Miracle Field was constructed to allow all abilities the opportunity to get on the field to enjoy a game of baseball rather than just cheering from the sidelines. The field is a barrier-free, handicapped-accessible baseball field that is enjoyed by many but unfortunately, the field is no longer safe and needs to be restored.

The cost to restore Miracle Field is $200,000 and thankfully, over $90,000 has already been donated.

With the communities help, the goal of $200,000 will be met, and "Play Ball" will once again be cheered in June 2022.

The Miracle Field of Rochester is asking for your help. The Mission of the Miracle Field is to offer youth and adults with disabilities an inclusive and accessible place to play baseball and not just be a spectator on the sidelines.
As the field has aged, large cracks on the surface of the playing field have made our barrier-free accessible field not safe for youth and adults with disabilities to play on. Our goal is to have the field resurfaced by the summer of 2022.
We ask for your support as a sponsor of our Miracle Field Restoration Project. Your tax-deductible donation will help us meet our goal of raising $200,000 to restore the surface of the field and upgrade other amenities.
We sincerely appreciate all levels of support. Please consider a donation to restore the field and allow the Miracle Field athletes to play ball this summer. All donors will receive a note of thanks from some of our athletes and their families. Upper-level donations will be recognized with a sign on the outfield fence. - Miracle Field Rochester MN
