Architectural rendering of the new Hill Road Park. The future site of the MLGF field is #9.
The Miracle League of Greater Flint (MLGF) is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization dedicated to creating opportunities for physical activity for children of all abilities. In partnership with Mundy Township, MLGF is leading the effort to raise funds for the first accessible baseball field in the area. The field will be part of the new Hill Road Park, located at 1286 W. Hill Road, with close proximity to US 23, I-75 and I-475. It will become an important community focal point for the more than 10,000 children with disabilities in Genesee County.
The MLGF field will be unique in many ways. It will feature a continuous flat rubberized surface. The pitcher’s mound, the bases, and all other features are incorporated into the surface using a color pattern to distinguish them, reducing tripping hazards for crutches or wheelchairs, and other assistive devices. Once the field is constructed, it will provide the opportunity for children with physical and emotional challenges to participate in the great game of baseball in an environment that is safe and supportive, designed to meet their needs.
