FLINT, MI -- The first fully-accessible baseball field in Genesee County has just begun to grow into reality.

The Miracle League of Greater Flint announced on Monday that it received a $50,000 grant from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation to build a facility.

The newest baseball field in Genesee County will be located at Mundy Miracle Commons, Mundy Township on Hill Road. It is currently slated to be built next summer.

This new baseball field will improve the areas recreational accessibility, said Jennifer Acree, program officer for Mott Foundation.

Mundy Township has been in partnership with the organization since 2016. The Miracle League field is a part of the townships recreational master plan.

The grant from the Mott Foundation brings us closer to making this field of dreams more beautiful for over 10,000 kids in Genesee County, said Brian Caine, of MLGF.

The Mundy Miracle Commons has paved paths, accessible parking and a hill. The development of the other sports fields, a pavilion and an amphitheater are not yet underway.

It would be best if it was completed in 2022, bringing together a new generation of players on this special field.

Nearly 300 Miracle League fields exist globally; in Michigan currently six Miracle League fields are in operation.
