Dream League

The Baseballtown Dream League provides every kid the opportunity to the play baseball regardless of experience or ability.

In 2016, Chuck Domino, President of Baseballtown Charities and Scott Hunsicker, Vice President of Baseballtown Charities began a new venture, the Baseballtown Charities Dream League. This venture expanded Baseballtown Charities role to give those with physical and cognitive disabilities the same chance to experience the magic of baseball and thrill of playing on the diamond through custom-designed, turf fields that accommodate wheelchairs and other assertive devices while helping to prevent injuries. During the summer of 2017, Baseballtown Charities broke ground on the Savage 61 Dream Field at the Relevant Sports Complex, a million-dollar facility in Muhlenberg Township. In the Spring of 2018, for the first time ever over 100 children finally had the opportunity to play on a field of their own, in a league of their own, just like every other kid.

The Baseballtown Dream League plays 2 seasons each year, spring and fall. In the spring, the league forms teams that play twice a week. In the fall, players that sign up can come to any number of open play games they choose throughout the week.

Registration is now open for participants interested in playing during the 2023 Fall season. Register here for the upcoming season!

The Dream League is 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!

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

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. We even have witnessed home runs hit out of the park at the Savage 61 Dream Field!

Each team in the Spring will play approximately 2 games per week, 1 weekday game & 1 weekend game. The schedule will be determined after sign-ups end. THIS WILL CHANGE DEPENDING ON SEASON.

Games will consist of 2 innings with every player coming to bat in each inning. Games last approximately 1 hour. All games will end in a tie and will be non-competitive and a ton of fun! Schedules are distributed prior to the start of the season. Weeknight games begin at 6 p.m. The first game on Saturdays begin at 9:30am.

Volunteers are present at every game to assist our athletes with the game of baseball, give encouragement and keep our players safe!
