West Ridge Baseball Complex - Field #8, 1600 Covington Avenue, Opelika

Academy Sports

The Miracle Field of East Alabama project is not only a baseball field, but it includes an entire environment suited for special needs youth and ball players. The field itself has a rubberized synthetic turf allowing wheelchairs and walkers to glide unrestricted in addition to the accessible dugouts and bleachers. The environment encompasses a control center with wheelchair and walker accessible restrooms & water fountains, an all accessible press box, a special needs accessible playground, and a pavilion for family and community fellowship.

Updated Schedule
There will only be one game played on the upper field starting at 10:00 am. There will be players from the Red Sox, Giants and Sox that we will divide into two teams to play each other. (Gwen’s team the Pirates will all be at the Special Olympics) On the Miracle Field, the Yankees will be the only team there for the 11:00 am game. We will do one of the following two options: 1.) Put adults in the field and let the players bat four times  2.) We will see if any of the players on the two teams that play at 10:00 would like to play a second game and let them play the Yankees. I am not exactly positive of what we will do but whatever we do we will have fun! (Gwen’s team the Padres will not be there)  
Upper Field: Only one game at 10:00 am Miracle Field: Four games 10:00 am, 11:00 am, 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm.
