Palm Beach County Wins Bid to Host Miracle League All-Star Weekend

The Miracle League of Palm Beach County and the Palm Beach County Sports Commission will partner to host the fifth annual Miracle League All-Star Weekend for youth and adults with disabilities from November 3-5. This marks the first time the Miracle League All-Star Weekend will take place in The Palm Beaches.

The Miracle League of Palm Beach County aims to remove barriers that keep individuals with physical and mental disabilities from participating on the baseball field and provide them the opportunity to enjoy America’s favorite pastime. Each Miracle League organization selects players from their local league to attend this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Palm Beach County is expected to host more than 400 volunteers, 80 directors, and 200 players from two countries, 20 states, and over 25 cities.

“The Miracle League of Palm Beach County is honored to host the 2023 Miracle League All-Star Weekend. The Miracle League has helped transform our community and we are excited to welcome players from across the country to Palm Beach County, for a weekend of baseball and fun,” said Julia Kadel, Executive Director of The Miracle League of Palm Beach County.

By hosting the games, the Miracle League of Palm Beach County will continue its ongoing commitment to equity and having the space that provides children and adults with disabilities the chance to play sports in a safe, fun, and inclusive atmosphere. The event will serve as a reminder of the important community work that must be done to create equal opportunities for individuals of all ages and abilities to thrive on and off the field. Most importantly, these families will have the lasting experience of traveling to a new city, meeting new friends, and getting the opportunity to be a real All-Star.

Since 2000, The Miracle League has worked to remove barriers that previously prevented children and adults with mental and physical disabilities from participating in baseball. Today, the League serves over 200,000 individuals with more than 330 Miracle League organizations across the country. By opening the field to players with mental and physical disabilities, the Miracle League provides equal opportunities to make new friends, build self-esteem, and be treated like any other athlete.
