What is the Kiwanis Miracle League?

ALL kids should be given the chance to play baseball.  The Kiwanis Miracle League at Prospect Meadows makes baseball possible for children and youth in the metro area and surrounding counties – regardless of their abilities.  Miracles happen as players experience the joy of baseball – being on a team, feeling the bat hit the ball, running the bases, hearing the crowds cheer for them, and cheering on their teammates. Parents and other guests of our players also have a great time cheering on the players.

How, when, and where are the games played?

On six Saturdays in the spring (around May), and six more in the fall (around Sept), our kids have the greatest days of their lives.  Each game takes an hour.  Every kid will have an official team jersey and have a volunteer buddy assigned to them.  Each player gets a hit and the last batter hits a grand slam to bring their teammates home.

The Marion Metro Kiwanis Miracle League Field is just inside the entrance to the Prospect Meadows sports complex.  This is where the miracles happen.

How to register your child or youth?

Our league has 100+ players on 10 teams. To join them click the “Register Player” button.  Fill out the info and you will get an email confirming your registration. Players get to play for free.  All equipment, including official hats and jerseys, will be provided to our players.  The only thing the families need to provide is transportation to and from the games.

How to volunteer?

Each Saturday over forty volunteers are needed – buddies for all of the players, pitchers, catchers, and more. To register as a volunteer click the “Register Volunteer” button.
