The Miracle League of Greater Flint is one step closer to playing ball with the grand opening of the Mundy Miracle Commons.

The Mundy Miracle Commons is officially open after years of planning and fundraising. The new facility is located on Hill Rd, between VanSlyke and Fenton Rds. The project has been a long time in the making, and thanks to the partnership between Mundy Township and the Miracle League of Greater Flint, it's becoming a reality.

The Disability Network did a video about the new project last year, covering the impact that the Miracle Commons would have on the community.

Even though the Mundy Miracle Commons are now officially open, the project is only about half way done. The actual Miracle League field is not built yet, but they are hoping to debut the field in in mid 2022.

Fundraising is always the hardest part about a project like this, and right now the organizers are just over the halfway mark to their goal of $400,000. If you would like to help by donating, you can check out The Miracle League of Greater Flint online here or donate to a GoFundMe for the project here.

Even without the completed miracle field, there are still plenty of really big developments at the Mundy Miracle Commons. Some of the bigger completed projects at the facility include a sledding hill, new lighting, and paved trails for walking or biking.

I've had the privilege of working with the Miracle League over the years, and I am so happy that we are getting a field in Genesee County. Baseball has been one of the biggest parts of my life, and seeing how the Miracle League brings the game to everyone is special to me. Check out the video below to get a small taste of how big of an impact the league makes.
