The Future for Beautiful People
Miracle League Baseball and BP Soccer and Basketball are expanding each year. As we grow our organization into other team sports, we are at last positioned to begin work on the equally important goal for a safe surface place to play. The vision of a fully accessible, rubberized turf ballpark becomes a reality this year. We look forward to hosting many more children and young adults to enjoy the benefits of exercising and socializing at a permanent facility of their own.
Build-out plans are finalized and approvals in place for Beautiful People to home base their baseball program in Warwick, NY. Two new fields will be added to an existing one and your help is needed to make it happen.
A transformation of the former Mid-Orange Correctional Facility has taken place and newly named “Wickham Woodlands”. It’s contained within 733 acres in the heart of the Warwick Valley. Over 200 acres available for recreation and public use, inclusive of a ball fields and pavilion, Quality of Life Banquet and Concession Hall and tranquil Wickham Lake where you can bring your own canoe or kayak, or enjoy the walking paths.

A full sized minor league ball diamond with dugouts already exist as well as a concession building with accessible restrooms, a large picnic pavilion, and parking lot. Beautiful People donations will construct an additional tee-ball sized grass field, and a fully accessible, safe-surface (Miracle League model) ball diamond making a permanent home for our baseball program.
