Miracle League of the Capital Region

The Miracle League was founded in April 2000 after a Dean Alford realized that special needs athletes could not fully enjoy baseball on a traditional field. That started the drive for the first Miracle League baseball field in Conyers, Georgia. Since that time, over 60 other Miracle League fields have sprung up across the United States, with well over 100 under construction. The Capital Region Miracle League is the first of its kind in Upstate New York. Located in East Greenbush, New York, the Capital Region Miracle League offers athletic and social opportunities at no cost to special needs children, adults and their families. The League offers baseball, basketball, bowling, football, soccer and track & field to special needs participants of all ages. The League promotes physical, social and emotional development while providing an extended support group and knowledge base to participants and their families. Jaime M. Adams Field is the first multi-sport facility in the United States designed specifically for special needs athletes. With the help of the Town of East Greenbush, who generously provided space in the Town Park, along with many other generous sponsors and volunteers, Jaime M. Field has become a dream come true. The field officially opened for use on May 16, 2009.
