Mission Statement

The ALLPLAY Miracle Baseball League for children and adults with disabilities believes:

"Everyone deserves the chance to play baseball !"

ALLPLAY gets these wonderful children and adults off the sideline and into the game where they can showcase to their family and friends how they can play the game.

To be a teammate, wear a uniform, hit a ball, run/walk/or roll around the bases, to score a run, get a trophy, and just have fun - the ALLPLAY Miracle Baseball League provides the opportunity for these children and adults.

Volunteers and buddies help make ALLPLAY a special place for the players and their families where dreams are realized and special moments happen.
