Rochester, Minnesota Athletes Need a Miracle for Their Field!

The Miracle Field in Rochester, Minnesota needs a miracle!

Back in 2006, Miracle Field was constructed to allow all abilities the opportunity to get on the field to enjoy a game of baseball rather than just cheering from the sidelines. The field is a barrier-free, handicapped-accessible baseball field that is enjoyed by many but unfortunately, the field is no longer safe and needs to be restored.

The cost to restore Miracle Field is $200,000 and thankfully, over $90,000 has already been donated.

With the communities help, the goal of $200,000 will be met, and "Play Ball" will once again be cheered in June 2022.
