Field of Dreams

Field of DreamsThe Field of Dreams at the Prattville YMCA Bradford Branch

An ADA Accessible Baseball Field

 

The Field of Dreams removes the barriers that keep children with mental and physical disabilities off the baseball field and lets them experience the joys of Americas favorite pastime.  Since the main barriers for these children and adults arise from the natural grass fields used in traditional baseball leagues, the Field of Dreams participants play on a customized designed rubberized turf field that accommodates wheelchairs and other assistive devices while helping to prevent injuries.

The Field of dreams is not just about baseball.  It is about making new friends, building self-esteem and being treated like any other athlete.  The league serves children and adults who suffer from any physical or mental disability that causes them to be excluded from traditional leagues.
