Miracle League Field
The Miracle League is a FREE baseball/softball league for children with special needs from age 5 – 18 and adults 19 and older. The Miracle League is just like baseball. Players will bat, round the bases, catch, throw, and hit Home Runs! There are a few differences in how the game is played.
• Each player has a buddy that gets to assist them.
• Each player will bat once each inning.
• Every player is safe, no one is out.
• Every player will score a run before the inning is over.
• The last player up hits a HOME RUN.
• Every game ends in a tie.
• A game will last two innings or an hour.
• Special rubberized playing surface.
The league is open to all Greater Des Moines residents and will start on Sunday, April 29th and run through Sunday, June 10th (no games Memorial weekend). Games will be played at the Miracle League of Urbandale, located at Northview Park Little League Complex, from 1 PM - 4 PM each of those Sundays. Urbandale Parks and Recreation will assign players to teams after registration is complete. Each team will need at least two parent coaches.

Angels in the Outfield
We also need volunteers to be Angels in the Outfield. Each player has a buddy that gets to spend the game with them. Buddies can be ages 13 and older. As a buddy you will protect the player at all times. Assist the player, allowing them to play as much as possible. Support all the players with high fives, knuckles, and cheering. Enjoy the players and your experience.
