The Pirates Charities Miracle League of the South Hills is carrying on the mission statement of all Miracle League fields: “Every Child Deserves A Chance to Play Baseball.”
They are bringing the game of baseball to children who may have never had the opportunity to play on a real field. By building a custom-designed field with a cushioned rubberized surface to help prevent injuries, wheelchair accessible dugouts and a completely flat surface to eliminate any barriers to wheel-chair bound or visually impaired players, the field has eliminated the challenges that prevent many children from playing the game of baseball.
In addition to giving kids the chance to play the game they are dedicated to bringing together children through the “Buddies” program. They believe that the baseball field is a place that can connect all children by building teamwork and friendship.
