Sat March 7, 2020 Moody, AL US 35004 Directions
Moody City Ball Park - Moody Miracle League Field
663 Park Ave
Moody, AL US 35004

This past year we had our course certified as a 5k course with USATF Certification # (AL18055JE)

This is our 6th year for our Miracles In Motion 5k Race and 1 Mile Walk/Run events. 

It takes place March 7, 2020 at Moody Miracle League Ball Field.  This race is great for all individuals regardless of age or athletic abilities.  Come run/walk or roll this event.  To date we have raised over $100,000 toward the $150,000 we are raising to replace the field.


We are continuing to keep our low price this year of only $20 for the 5k as we want more runners to sign up and come meet our players.  Each 5k registered individual will get an awesome race t-shirt*, a chipped-bib and a grab bag.  This is a family-friendly event for all and we expect to have a fun day with all athletes including our special needs baseball players.

The 1 mile Fun Run/Walk/Roll is free to participate.  If you register for the $15 you will get an awesome race t-shirt*, a bib and a grab bag.

*Only the first 200 registrants will receive this years t-shirt.  Select Previous Years Shirt if all others gone (Various sizes as available).

A baseball game played by our players will be held after the 5K run.  This will allow all participants in the 5k & Fun Run to experience a game on our field.  We are planning for 400+ participants in this family-friendly environment. 


This race is becoming popular for all types of athletes as it gives them a chance to spend time with our special needs baseball players.

We hope you will consider joining us as we encourage community involvement, wellness and fun while raising funds to help us replace our aging field.  This allows special needs players of all ages from St. Clair, Etowah, Jefferson, Shelby, Talladega, Blount, and Calhoun counties to continue playing the game of baseball.

2018 Race

The Miracle League surface is made up of a custom designed, cushioned synthetic turf that accommodates wheel chairs and other walking assistance devices. The field restrooms are completely accessible to people with disabilities. The dugouts are designed so wheelchairs can easily make their way to and from home plate.
The field is now over 17 years old and has several areas that have deteriorated over time.  This is making it difficult for players to easily make their way to and from home plate. (See pictures below.)
It is our mission to replace the aging field in order to meet the needs of all of our disabled players. Our goal is to raise money to keep repairs up on the field and to eventually replace this custom synthetic turf.  This will allow our players to make those home runs they deserve.  We hope that you will be able to register for this event.

The Moody Miracle League is a charitable organization that provides individuals with mental and/or physical challenges an opportunity to play baseball as a team member in an organized league.  There is something about playing the game of baseball that lights up a player’s eyes, but for individuals facing mental and physical challenges, that opportunity can often be difficult.  The Moody Miracle League gives these individuals the opportunity to get out in the sunshine and enjoy the game of baseball in its purest form.  The Moody Miracle League was the first in the State of Alabama and serves players of all ages in St. Clair, Etowah, Jefferson, Shelby, Talladega, Blount, and Calhoun counties.
