Horsham's "Miracle Field" will support wheelchair baseball.

The Miracle Field of Horsham is getting half a million dollars to come to fruition. This project will develop the land at Deep Meadow Park in Horsham to a rubberized baseball field for players with special needs, writes Jon Campisi for the Hatboro-Horsham Patch.  

It was during its “Diamond Night” fundraiser that the office of State Sen. Maria Collett presented the check.  

“Bringing a state-of-the-art Miracle League field to Horsham will send a loud and clear message to local individuals with disabilities and the people who love and care for them,” said Collett in a statement. 

Horsham township manager William Walker said that the new $500,000 in grant will be combined with the $250,000 that was raised.  

The field will also accommodate wheelchairs and other mobility aids.
