The Miracle League of Southwestern PA

Every Child Deserves a Chance to Play

History

The Miracle League of Southwestern PA was formed in 2007 with the goal of providing a field and league structure so that children with special needs could play organized baseball. After more than two years and much effort, Opening Day for the MLSWPA was on May 16, 2009 with 10 teams playing. The 2009 season was made up of a 16 game schedule broken up into eight game spring and fall sessions. After a successful first year, the MLSPWA expanded its offerings and added a Competitive Youth Division and Adult Division to go along with the Miracle Division in 2010. Opening Day for 2010 happened on May 13th with our first Competitive Youth Division game. The MLSWPA doubled its number of teams to 20 total and will be playing a 16 game season once again broken up into eight game spring and fall sessions. Our very important volunteers have doubled in number as well from 2009 to 2010 with over 450 volunteers helping on the field.

2013 will be the MLSWPA’s 5th season.
