The city of Findlay is working to bring a Miracle Field to town, which would be made of rubber and allow children and adults with special needs to play baseball.
It's still in the very early stages, but there is plenty of interest for the field that could be a major asset to the Flag City. The idea is part of a plan that would add two ball fields to the Marathon Diamonds, with the Miracle Field between them.
Multiple groups and agencies have expressed interest in helping to fund the Miracle Field. Currently, the city is putting a design scope together to get proposals from consultants for a preliminary field design so they know what the fundraising efforts will look like.
There is a Miracle Field in Northwood, but not many in the area. City leaders believe it will benefit the city, but more importantly, the people who will be able to use it.
"It's hard to really put into words what you can do with that facility that's specifically designed for handicapped children to get around and have an organized game. The Miracle Field, the Miracle Field Network does a great job at running these tournaments. And we think it's something that can be used by kids year round, but then also, be a real big event and really something that we can celebrate," said Paul Schmelzer, safety service director.
Fundraising efforts could take about a year. Construction would likely begin in 2015.
