The Miracle League is a national organization that helps all local programs establish their own non-profit organization and provides helpful materials for the startup of the leagues. Due to the popularity of the concept, there are now over 270 Miracle League Organizations across the USA, Puerto Rico, Canada, and Australia.
The Miracle League at Cypress Mounds was founded in 2008 with the construction of Cypress Mounds Baseball Complex. After fundraising efforts raised enough money to build such a specialized field, opening ceremonies were held and the first season started in the Spring of 2011. A Spring and Fall season has occurred every year since with the league growing in numbers of players and volunteers each year.
As our organization continues to expand, the possibilities for our leagues are endless and could potentially include adult leagues and competitive leagues.
“Every Child Deserves The Chance To Play Baseball”
Our Mission is to provide opportunities for children and adults with special needs to play baseball as part of an organized league, regardless of their abilities.
