Kids will dress their personalized bear in baseball apparel and take part in the "heart ceremony" and birth certificate distribution. Following the build, the players will have lunch with the kids and their parent. This event is a Beyond the Diamond initiative funded by Brewers Community Foundation.
 
The Miracle League believes everyone deserves a chance to play baseball. The league allows all children to play organized baseball, regardless of ability. Kids with special needs dress in uniforms, make plays in the field and round the bases just like their peers in standard little leagues.
Miracle League baseball is played on a custom-designed field featuring a cushioned, rubberized, completely flat surface to prevent injuries and allow access for the visually impaired and those in wheelchairs. All areas of the field, including the dugouts and restrooms, are universally accessible.
