Batter up! Miracle League of Wilmington returns to play at Olsen Park

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Baseball is back as the Miracle League of Wilmington returns to play this weekend at the Miracle Field located at Olsen Park.

“We are excited for all of our All-Stars to hit the field on Saturday,” John Smist Executive Director of ACCESS of Wilmington, the operators of the Miracle League, said. “November 2019 was the last time our AllStars swung for the fences so it’s been a long time coming.”

The COVID-19 pandemic put a halt to the 2020 Miracle League season before it started.

2021 season will be played while following strict COVID protocols and all guidelines set by the City of Wilmington and the state of North Carolina.

The season runs nine weeks while taking a break for the Easter holiday.
