Baseball Field For Handicapped To Open In Md.


GERMANTOWN, Md. (AP) -- A baseball field specially designed with the needs of handicapped children in mind is set to open in Montgomery County.


A ribbon-cutting for the Washington Nationals Miracle Field is set to be held Monday morning. Players from the Washington Nationals will be on hand for the grand opening of the field, which has a cushioned synthetic turf that allows children using wheelchairs and walkers to play safely on the field.


The field is located in South Germantown Recreational Park.
