The Miracle League of the North Shore is here!
Spring Season starts April 1st!
The Children’s Center for Communication/ Beverly School for the Deaf (CCCBSD) is honored to be the host and home of the North Shore chapter of The Miracle League.
We are now home to the North Shore’s only all-accessible, rubberized baseball field perfect to accommodate all players and adaptive equipment.
More players are always welcome! We are currently accepting applications for parent and student volunteers to help organize or coach teams. For more information, e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to the Cummings Foundation and the van Otterloo Family Foundation for the generous grants that will make the new adaptive field a reality. The support enabled CCCBSD to construct the rubberized, adaptive baseball field, which will help eliminate barriers for children who use wheelchairs, are visually impaired or have other challenges.

About the Miracle League of the North Shore
(Players: School aged kids 5 and up)
The Miracle League of the North Shore is an all volunteer, non-profit organization that gives children with disabilities a chance to play baseball as part of a team in an organized league at no cost to their family. The Children’s Center for Communication/Beverly School for the Deaf is now home to the first all-accessible baseball field on the North Shore.
The League involves all players by utilizing the following adaptive rules:
- Every player bats once each inning;
- All players are safe on the bases;
- Every player scores a run before the inning is over (last one up gets a home run);
- Community children and volunteers serve as ‘buddies’ to assist the players; and
- Each team and each player wins every game.
