The UPS Foundation recently donated $30,000 to The Miracle League of Manasota, a group that gives children and adults with disabilities a chance to play organized baseball.
The donation kicks off the Miracle League’s Capital Campaign for Phase II of its field complex at Longwood Park.
“We thank the UPS Foundation for its significant contribution to the Miracle League and are thrilled it feels so strongly about our program and our mission,” Miracle League President Bob Mitchell said.
The Miracle League’s baseball field, which opened in the spring, has a flat, rubberized surface to create a safe playing environment and features specially designed dugouts. Phase II will include bleachers and sunshades, a concession, accessible restrooms, a pavilion and other amenities.
The Miracle League also recently received a $5,000 Quality of Life grant from the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, which it will use to pay for the bleachers and sunshades.
