The philanthropic arm of the Pittsburgh Pirates has donated $50,000 to the Miracle League of Manasota.

Pirate Charities’ commitment will go toward the construction of the Miracle League Field for children and adults with special needs in Manatee and Sarasota counties.

The field, which will be located in Longwood Park, will have flat rubberized surface to create a safe playing environment and will feature special dugouts, an electronic scoreboard, a concession stand and pavilion and restrooms.

The Miracle League hopes to begin construction this summer and have the fields ready for play in the fall of 2011.
