EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- The Miracle League of the Chippewa Valley, an organized baseball league for children with disabilities, held an informational session for families who are interested in having their children joining the league.

The league plans to start games on the new field at Jeffers Park in Eau Claire in June. The league will give children from 4-19 years old the opportunity to play on a rubberized field. Organizers say they’ve raised close to half of the $525,000 goal as of today. The plan is for the field to be completed in the middle of May. The grand opening for the field is tentatively scheduled for June 6th. Today, leaders of the league gave more information to families who have thought about joining the league.

“We’re just really excited about the program coming,” Nick White, the capital campaign chair, said. “The community support has been awesome. We’re really fortunate to have such great support in the Chippewa Valley to get a program like this going.”
