Sitework on the Miracle League Field at the Durham Bulls is rolling full steam ahead. Thanks to the recent dry weather conditions, work has been moving forward to build the facility in downtown Durham, across the street from the DBAP.
The stormwater retention pond is starting to take shape, and the crew hopes to begin construction on the actual playing surface in the coming weeks.
Durham Bulls staffers are excited about the growing progress on the facility.
“The first thing a Miracle League family says when discussing what the league means to them is how the ML provides an opportunity for their family to have a ‘normal’ afternoon,” said DBBC Assistant General Manager – Operations Scott Strickland. “Put on a uniform, load up the car, head to the ballpark, hit a homerun, and high give your teammates while playing America’s favorite pastime.”
He continued, “Everyone deserves the opportunity to have that feeling and we can’t wait to open the Durham Bulls Miracle League Field to give that taste of normalcy to additional Triangle families.”
The Miracle League of the Triangle provides an opportunity for children and adults with special needs to play baseball. The nonprofit has a goal to serve 1,000 families per season and this additional field will help accomplish that goal.
