Newton County Recreation Commission, Covington Rotary Club, Covington Kiwanis Club, The Covington & Oxford Lions' Clubs and The Friends of Newton Parks have all joined together in partnership to build the first ever Miracle League Field in Newton County.

The complex will include a custom-designed field with a cushioned rubberized surface to help prevent injuries, wheelchair accessible dugouts, and a completely flat surface to eliminate any barriers to wheelchair-bound or visually impaired players. Accessible restrooms, a concession stand, and picnic pavilion will also be incorporated within this design.The complex will be built at City Pond Park in Covington.

With the help of community volunteers and companies, Newton County’s very first Miracle League complex will provide the opportunity for all children to play baseball regardless of their physical ability. Your contribution to the Miracle League Field project could make a difference in a child’s life.
