A major storm that crossed through New Jersey this weekend has forced a New Jersey baseball league to put its season on hold due to damage.
The Miracle League of Mercer County was set to open on Sunday. The league is for kids and adults with special needs. It is unclear when the league will begin.
Those who run the league say that flying bleachers caused damage to the fences and ripped up the field.
The field is designed for wheelchairs and walkers. The bleachers were found on the centerfield fence.
The Miracle League of Mercer County has been around for almost 20 years. About 200 families participate.
It is not clear how much it will cost to fix the field. It originally cost about $200,000 eight years ago.
The league is run largely by donations. Anyone who wishes to make a donation can do so HERE.
