"Every Person Deserves The Chance To Play Baseball"
The Miracle League of the South Hills is an all inclusive program that allows individuals starting from the age of 5 and up to learn and play the fundamentals of baseball.
The Miracle League of the South Hills serves individuals with special needs. Our community of players, families, and volunteers work together toward a common mission: to give individuals of all abilities the chance to learn and play the fundamentals of baseball.

Organization of Players
If you are a new player in our league and/or have never played baseball before, we recommend starting in the Miracle Division! Any new players interested in playing in the Advanced Skills Division should reach out to Assistant Director Miranda Klein at email@example.com or 412-600-9976.
Miracle Division (non-competitive)
Ages 5 and up
Buddies are assigned to each player to help them hit, run the bases, and have fun on and off the field!
Everyone hits, everyone scores.
There are no outs, and all games end in a tie.
Players are in the field while other teams hit, but defense is not a priority.
2 inning games (1 hour)
Hitting: coach pitch or tee, whatever the athlete prefers
Miracle Division teams do not have practices; only games.
Advanced Skill Division (competitive)
Ages 10 and up
No buddies. Players in the Advanced Skills Division are independent on the field: hitting, running the bases, and fielding on their own without the guidance of a buddy.
Players in the Advanced Skills Division lean on their teammates and coaches for support.
We teach teamwork, sportsmanship, and some baseball rules and skills.
Players play defensive positions and learn the skills at each position during games and practices.
We play with baseball rules, so outs are recorded.
Innings switch at either 3 outs or 5 runs scored, whichever comes first.
4 inning games
Games can end in a win, loss, or tie.
No strike outs, but you can get out if the defense makes a play, catches the ball, tags you out, etc.
Hitting: Coaches Pitch. If there is not a hit in fair territory after 15 pitches, the player draws a walk.
Practices are once a week on Mondays or Tuesdays during the season.
