Miracle League baseball field opens in Cottage Grove
COTTAGE GROVE, Wis. — After years of hard work, a Miracle League baseball field is finally open in Dane County.
The new field, located in Cottage Grove, is made of rubberized turf so kids with walkers and wheelchairs can easily play. Tuesday night, kids of all abilities got a chance to do just that.
“It just means everything. Kids like him can play baseball like everybody else and just be included and accepted is just all we’ve ever wanted for Noah,” mom Cindy Plantikow said. “It means the world to us that he gets to come out here and play baseball.
Every kid is paired up with a buddy who helps them maneuver around the field.
Organizers said close to 100 kids have already signed up to play.
