MINNEAPOLIS (August 3, 2015) — RJM Construction, a Minneapolis-based general contractor, has been selected by the City of Eden Prairie to build a new baseball field for physically challenged players. The project is scheduled to begin on Monday, August 10.
Located at 15219 Pioneer Trail in Eden Prairie, the field will feature a cushioned rubberized surface, wheelchair accessible dugouts and a completely flat surface for use by physically challenged players. The various areas of the field are designated by different colors.
In the summer of 2011, an Eden Prairie 12 year old AAA baseball team watched a Miracle League game being played and decided that they should have one in Eden Prairie. After significant efforts by the team and various partnerships, the dream is becoming a reality.
“We are pleased to be working on a project that will make a positive impact to the community,” stated Brian Recker, RJM senior vice president. “We support the league’s mantra – every child deserves a chance to play baseball.”
The project has received support from the City of Eden Prairie, the Eden Prairie Community Foundation, and the Eden Prairie Baseball Association. Beyond organized support, many private donors have made contributions to the project.
RJM has completed several projects with the City of Eden Prairie, including Round Lake Stadium adjacent to the Eden Prairie Community Center. They are also currently completing the Eden Prairie Aquatics Center.
About the Miracle League
The Miracle League removes the barriers that keep children with mental and physical disabilities off the baseball field and lets them experience the joy of America’s favorite pastime. Since the main barriers for these adults arise from the natural grass fields used in conventional leagues, Miracle League teams play on a custom-designed, rubberized turf field that accommodates wheelchairs and other assertive devices while helping to prevent injuries.
