About

Miracle League of Music City

The Miracle League of Music City was born when Scott and Sandi Tygard, founders of West Nashville Sports Leagues, noticed that although 6,000 kids were enjoying their program, they were not able to accommodate kids with disabilities. 

After several years of behind-the-scenes hard work, we are ready to begin the capital fundraising campaign for Nashville's first Miracle Field!

Scott and Sandi connected with Vanderbilt Baseball Alumni Tyler Beede and his non-profit, More Than Me, to help bring the project to life.

MISSION

The mission of the Music City Miracle League is to promote the health and well-being of children with disabilities and develop community awareness and support for the athlete with disabilities through organized sports leagues.

The Miracle League is designed to serve kids who cannot be accommodated by established baseball and soccer leagues due to the special needs of their disabilities.

VISION

The vision of the program is to provide any disabled child, regardless of their level of disability, the opportunity to play league sports and enjoy the emotional and physical benefits of being part of a team sport.

ABOUT THE FIELD

The Miracle League field will be located in Nashville at Metropolitan Parks Edwin Warner Park. The Miracle Field is a specially constructed baseball field that uses a cushioned, synthetic turf to accommodate wheelchairs and other walking-assistance devices that, along with appropriate support facilities, is designed specifically for use by children with disabilities.

*The field will also be used by adults/veterans with disabilities.

Risks and challenges

The total cost of this project is $1.5M. The goal is to raise most of these funds through corporate partners, however, we need the community's support to raise awareness.
