Playing baseball can be a challenge for anyone with an intellectual or physical disability. The Amherstburg Miracle League baseball diamond is custom designed with a cushioned synthetic turf that accommodates wheelchairs and walking devices. This surface helps prevent injury. 
The Amherstburg Miracle League uses volunteers in a variety of different ways. We welcome anyone who wants to make a difference and help make the Amherstburg Miracle League season memorable.
The players make every game special. But, it’s the people who offer their time and friendship that make it possible.
