The Miracle League Gives Kids a Chance to Play Baseball

In 1974, real estate professional Gary R. Gibbs established Cambridge Associated Real Estate, LLC, which grew to be a multimillion-dollar company. Beyond his work, Gary R. Gibbs raises funds for The Miracle League, a charitable organization that builds baseball fields for children with special needs.

The Miracle League started in 1998 when the Rockdale Youth Baseball Association invited a 7-year-old boy in a wheelchair to play on the team. A year later, other children with disabilities were invited to play for Rockdale.

The concept of The Miracle League, expressed in its tagline “Every Child Deserves a Chance to Play Baseball,” caught the attention of many professional baseball players, including Harmon “The Killer” Killebrew. Killebrew was a legend in professional baseball. He became an outspoken supporter of many charities and causes, including The Miracle League.

Killebrew devoted the last years of his life promoting and raising awareness of The Miracle League’s impact on the lives of adults and children with disabilities. He actively helped construct several Miracle Fields across the nation.
