The Miracle League of the Triangle is a volunteer-driven nonprofit organization operating as a baseball league for children and adults with special needs. Our one-of-a-kind program provides a safe and positive place for individuals with special needs to play a team sport, often for the first time.
The Miracle League's Great Human Race goal is to sponsor every player and coach for the spring season. Each season, we provide our players a new uniform, a hat, a trophy and a team and individual picture all for $35. We want your help to reach that goal during this campaign.
Nation-wide there are over 250 Miracle League programs with 8 in North Carolina. The Miracle League of the Triangle serves over 500 children and adults in Wake County’s special needs community. The league has grown over the past 13 years from 80 children on 8 teams to supporting 500 players on 40 teams playing at 2 ball fields located in Cary and North Raleigh. The Miracle League of the Triangle is about to break ground on a third field, located in Durham.
With your support, Miracle League players enjoy using our customized fields that feature adapted infrastructure, ample handicap parking, and a synthetic sport surface accessible to wheelchairs and walkers. Most importantly, they offer a place for hundreds of individuals with special needs to participate in a league of their own.
Anyone who has seen the program in action knows that the Miracle League of the Triangle is much more than an ordinary baseball league. It’s an experience of sheer joy, made possible by a community of players, parents, and volunteers. Each Miracle League player has the thrill to be called up to bat with a personalized nickname and theme song. And every at-bat earns the team a run on the scoreboard. Volunteer coaches and player-buddies work one-on-one with our special athletes, emphasizing safety and fun. The program offers over 4,000 volunteer opportunities between the 8-week seasons held each spring and fall. As the organization grows, our goal is to serve over 1,000 players with special needs in the triangle area.
