The Miracle League of High Point

Miracle League Activity Book - Fall 2020

September 26, 2009 was a great day for the City of High Point and surrounding communities. As a result of the hard work and dedication of many, we proudly celebrated both the dedication of our Miracle League of High Point field and the opening games of the inaugural Miracle League of High Point season. Our inaugural season had four teams and forty-two players. 

Located at 2917 School Park Road, The Miracle League hosts a spring season in April and a fall season in September annually. We encourage you to become a part of the Miracle League of High Point. Whether as a player, a volunteer or simply a spectator, we know you will enjoy your experience! Visit the Miracle League website at
