The Department of Recreation is adding an exciting new program to their therapeutic recreation offerings. Located in the South Germantown Recreational Park, a new, specially equipped ball field will serve as the new home for the Washington Nationals Miracle League of Montgomery County. The league provides children with mental and/or physical challenges the opportunity to safely play baseball.

The Miracle League of Montgomery County is a partnership that includes the Washington Nationals, in association with the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation; the Annette M. and Theodore N. Lerner Family Foundation; the Miracle League of Montgomery County; the Kiwanis Club of Bethesda; the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, Montgomery Parks; and the Montgomery County Recreation Department.

The field will officially open on August 1 at a ceremony attended by state and local government officials as well as Nationals players, owners and front office executives. Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, the league participants will play their first game on the field with their “buddies,” including Washington Nationals players.
