Hello from the Executive Director!
Some people go their entire lives without ever witnessing a miracle.
For those of us at The Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields, we witness them every single day.
Like many in our community, Joe Nuxhall inspired me with his humility, kindness, and major-league-character. The Ole Lefthander had a gentle spirit and a heart for those with special needs. Although Joe might have passed from this Earth, that spirit continues to inspire those of us who continue the work in his name.
We miss Joe—but it’s easy to see how he’s still here with us. The Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields are a tangible outpouring of Nuxy’s heart for the special needs population. There is no place in the world that is more “Joe” than the Nuxhall Miracle League Fields. And there’s absolutely no place in the world that I’d rather be than right here, serving as the Executive Director for The Nuxhall Foundation and The Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields.
Making miracles requires teamwork, and at The Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields, you’ll find players, families, volunteers, community-based organizations, generous donors and sponsors, and many others working together to continue the dream that Joe laid out for us so many years ago. At the Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields, our entire community comes together to ensure that every individual with every challenge gets every chance to play the game that Joe loved.
So, we invite you to come witness a miracle with us, or even make one yourself! Register to play in one of our leagues if you’re a special needs athlete. Join us for a game and cheer on our all-stars. Volunteer as a buddy, concession worker, or audiovisual team member. Make a donation to ensure that the miracles will continue forever. Those donations also help us achieve new dreams and additions to the campus, like our Skidmore Sales Mini Golf Club, and the forthcoming Hope Center to provide our athletes with year-round recreational opportunities.
On behalf of our Board of Directors at The Nuxhall Foundation, welcome to The Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields family!
