“Goodwill NCW is proud to support the Miracle League season for our players, families and communities, as part of our mission of Elevating People by Eliminating Barriers to Employment,” Tim Wavrunek, Mission Team Leader of Community Programs at Goodwill NCW said. “Miracle League gives children and teens with disabilities the opportunity to build valuable skills they carry forward into their future.”

Miracle League offers children and teens with disabilities the opportunity to play baseball in an organized, non-competitive league on a safe, accessible baseball field. This year, Miracle League of the Lakeshore has more than 84 players. The season is eight weeks long, beginning in June. Throughout the season, players aged four to 19 are paired with community volunteers who assist and encourage them during the games. Umpires, announcers, coaches, and team helpers also make up the more than 120 volunteers who are a vital part of the 2024 season. 

The Miracle League of the Lakeshore games are played at 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays at Goodwill Miracle Field of Dreams at Miracles Park, 1840 S. 35th St., Manitowoc.  The public is invited to attend the games throughout the season as supportive fans.
