Miracle League Of Chattanooga Celebrates 5 Years Of Miracle Moments

Wednesday, August 3, 2022

Approximately eight years ago, a small group of committed citizens began the final push to build a dedicated facility where individuals with disabilities could enjoy America’s favorite pastime--baseball. Thanks to the leadership of local organizations, like Rotary and the YMCA of Metropolitan Chattanooga, along with contributions from many generous donors and volunteers, Miracle League of Chattanooga was not only able to construct one of the finest baseball fields in the country, but also build a multipurpose field and playground for kids of all abilities.

Located at Warner Park, the Miracle League Complex was thoughtfully designed and constructed to accommodate a broad range of activities in a safe, secure and nurturing environment, said officials. 

The public is invited to come together on Sept. 17 to celebrate the past and look forward to a bright and hopeful future. Whether a player, a buddy, volunteer, or fan, please plan on attending. Participants will see first hand why this special place is where dreams come true, and miracles happen with every swing of the bat, said officials.

The free event will be held at Miracle League Complex at Warner Park from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 17.
