Congratulations to The Miracle League of High Point for another successful season!
For many years High Point community leaders discussed and envisioned the possibility of a special project known as the The Miracle League of High Point. The concept is simple, yet amazing; an athletic facility featuring a state-of-the-art baseball field that is built specifically for use by children who have special needs that could be shared by children from multiple counties. In 2007 the dream became a reality when a group of passionate volunteers partnered with the City of High Point to officially kick off the project.
The city donated the land which is located at the A.J. Simeon Athletic Complex, a popular destination for local sporting events, and the group of community leaders began their quest to raise the much needed funds to complete the baseball field and an adapted playground. The High Point Community Foundation, through the Annual Grants Program, recognized the importance of the project and awarded a significant grant to the Miracle League. A fund was also established at the Foundation to accept donations from the community to help reach the ultimate goal.
In September, 2009 the project was completed and The Miracle League of High Point officially opened their first season. High Point is now the second community in the entire state of North Carolina to offer this haven for youngsters who deserve the chance to enjoy the camaraderie and joy of playing baseball. In addition to the baseball field there is also a handicapped accessible playground that will provide hours of fun for these special youngsters.
Thanks to the support of many donors, young people who live with physical challenges will have the chance to compete in the Miracle League – a unique athletic experience that will bless both children and parents alike.
