We are excited to share the news that we have broken ground on a new YMCA Adaptive Sports Complex on the campus of the South County YMCA!
This project has been made possible through a generous partnership with the St. Louis Cardinals and Cardinals Care, the team's charitable foundation, Boniface Foundation, and Miracle League.
Located on the South County Y campus, the centerpiece of the $5.2 million sports complex is a custom-designed Miracle League Baseball Field with a cushioned, barrier-free surface and barrier-free dugout to provide accessibility for players with disabilities. The field is designed to have a look and feel similar to Busch Stadium and provide participants and their families with a "major league" experience, including a silhouette of the Gateway Arch on the outfield, just like the St. Louis Cardinals home field!
