The Miracle League of Valdosta, along with the Valdosta-Lowndes Parks and Recreation Authority, is nearing completion on a field specifically designed for the children and adults with special needs that use it. The field will be at Freedom Park as part of a larger project that’s adding four other regular softball fields to the complex.
It will be completed in November, with the first games played on it slated for around the first of March.

The dugouts will also be fully handicap accessible and will feature bathrooms with a toilet and showers to clean up players in the event of an accident on the field. (Read More)
