ANKENY, Iowa — Athletes with special needs will take the field Saturday for a new season at Ankeny’s Miracle League field.

It’s a non-competitive baseball program for youth with special needs. Each athlete is paired with a volunteer who helps them bat, field, and maneuver around the bases.

Organizers say volunteers are always needed.

Des Moines’ Miracle League season starts August 30th.
