Making dreams come true,
one pitch at a time.
At Dream League, we believe everyone, regardless of physical and mental ability, should have the chance to experience the magic of playing baseball. Unfortunately, traditional baseball diamonds are not designed for those with special needs.
The Dream League was formed to give those with physical and mental disabilities the same chance to enjoy the same game so many able-bodied players enjoy every day across the country. Our teams play on a custom-designed, turf field that accommodates wheelchairs and other assertive devices while helping to prevent injuries.
Of course, we build more than just inclusive baseball diamonds. We build beautiful bonds between players and teammates. And we build wonderfully supportive communities of friends and families.
DREAM LEAGUE FAQS:
Who can join the Dream League?
The Dream League was designed for ANYONE with physical and cognitive disabilities. There are no requirements or age barriers. If you know someone that would like to play, they can!
What is so unique about the Dream League Field?
It is a rubberized turf field built for safety and easily accessible for those with assistive devices such as wheel chairs and walkers. There are no raised obstacles on the field such as bases or mounds instead they are painted directly on the field to make everything flat and safe. The field is a little smaller than a typical little league field with the base path, pitching and outfield fence distances being a bit shorter.

The Savage 61 Dream Field is located at the Relevant Sports Complex, 2816 Old Pricetown Road, Temple, PA 19560.
