The Miracle League of the Lehigh Valley was founded in 2006, dedicated to providing children with special needs and other developmental disabilities an opportunity to play baseball. The $1.5 million facility was completed for $750,000 and well ahead of schedule. While contributions are still necessary and welcomed, this demonstrates the great outpouring of generosity from those involved in the construction of Fowler Field. It occupies approximately 5 acres of land in scenic Heidelberg Township, Pennsylvania. Opening ceremonies were held on July 27, 2006. Despite rain and thunderstorms, the great players and adoring fans were not deterred! Special guests included State Senators Pat Browne&James Rhoades, and the Philly Phanatic.
The state-of-the-art field is located on 5858 Sell Road, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania. It is in Heidelberg Township, along Rte. 309 N, approximately 9 miles from Route 22. To protect our very special players, the field itself is composed of Mondo Super X Performance turf. This is the same rubber surface material used for track events at the Olympic Games.
