Miracle League dedicates home plate for new baseball field

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - On Tuesday afternoon, WBTV took part in an outdoor ceremony to dedicate the home plate for Charlotte's new Miracle League.

The Miracle League is a baseball league aimed at kids with disabilities.  The YMCA is sponsoring it.  The new field is still under construction, behind the University City YMCA on Mallard Creek Road.  The field will be made of rubber so walker and wheelchair bound children can play.  Construction should be finished in September. 

Registration is open right now.  Go to www.YMCAMiracleLeague to register or see some of the volunteer opportunities. 

Anchor Molly Grantham emceed today's home plate dedication.

First game is September 8th.
