Petaluma will be getting an adaptable baseball diamond at Lucchesi Park, thanks to a local group that’s part of the nationally recognized Miracle League nonprofit.

A group of Petaluma parents, athletes and business leaders formed the Miracle League North Bay to fund the $2 million project. The accessible field will include a custom-designed, rubberized turf that can accommodate wheelchairs and other devices as well as wheelchair-accessible dugouts and pathways.

The nonprofit will also cover costs for routine maintenance of the field. The Boys and Girls Club of Marin and Petaluma will manage the programs.

“It’s bringing something that is so unique and something untapped to Petaluma — I’m dumbfounded that there’s not one in the Bay Area,” says Jennifer Richardson, one of the Miracle League North Bay’s founding member.
