The Optimist Club of Del Mar – Solana Beach are proud sponsors of the Miracle League of San Diego.
The Miracle League of San Diego is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children with special needs by giving them the opportunity to play baseball in an safe, organized setting. Since its inception in 2006, Miracle League has been serving individuals ages 5+ throughout San Diego county. The league currently has approximately 270 players in it across two baseball fields. The original field is located in Del Mar/Solana Beach, and the newest field is located at Bell Middle School off the 54 freeway. While the minimum age to participate as a player is 5 years old, we do not have an age maximum as our goal is to make everyone feel included and have this special opportunity. There is a Spring and Fall season, and each player is matched up with a buddy for the entire season and each buddy is paired with a player based on his or her unique needs. This is a wonderful way for everyone to develop new friendships, create memories and laughs, as well as participate in a fun, exciting activity with others. Emphasis on the buddy program enables us to also serve our parents. We recognize their daily challenges, and strive to ensure that on every Saturday during the season, they will have an hour to relax, sit in the stands and enjoy the game with fellow parents and fans. Because of our buddy system and because we have multiple coaches on the field, parents can relax with confidence. We encourage parents to coach, but discourage them from being their child’s buddy so their child can experience a new friendship. Affordability is never a question.
The Miracle League’s mission is to ensure that every participant goes away saying they had a great day!
