For 15 years, the Miracle League of Southwestern Pennsylvania has provided children and adults with physical and mental disabilities a chance to play like they’re in the big leagues.
The organization will celebrate its achievements on Saturday, July 29 with an All-Star Baseball Game at the Pirates Charities Miracle League Field at the UPMC Passavant Sportsplex at Graham Park in Cranberry Township.
Visiting teams from Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Florida will travel to Cranberry for the all-star festivities. Exhibition games will take place throughout the day beginning at 9 a.m. The All-Star Game is set to cap off the fun at 6:30 p.m., followed by a post-game concert.
Open to the public, the games are part of a weekend-long celebration that includes a Meet & Greet registration event Friday, July 28 and attending a Pittsburgh Pirates game at PNC Park on Sunday, July 30.
Founded in 2007, the Miracle League of Southwestern Pennsylvania has called the Pirates Charities Miracle League Field at the UPMC Passavant Sportsplex at Graham Park home since 2009. The field features a flat pitcher’s mound and bases and a rubber surface for crutches, walkers, and wheelchairs to move around easily and safely.
