YORK COUNTY, SC (WBTV) – Members of the York County Board of Disabilities Foundation announced Tuesday they have raised roughly half of the needed funds to construct what’s being called a “Miracle Park.”
Board members Warren Norman and David Williams started with the idea of building a Miracle Field in Rock Hill. A miracle field is a baseball field designed specifically for people with special needs. Then they took their idea a step further.
“There’s nothing like this, even close, in the United States,” Norman said.
The park, that’s being built at Winthrop Park off of Cherry Road, will include two Miracle Fields, two multi-purpose fields, a special needs playground, and a café that will employ people with disabilities.
A new league has formed in Rock Hill.
Leaders from Winthrop University and the city of Rock Hill have teamed up with a York County foundation to build a new sports park for athletes who often can’t join a sports team: children and adults with disabilities.
