Alternative Baseball Offers Opportunity For Special Needs Players

Nov 9, 2017

For over a century, baseball has been known as America’s pastime.

But not everyone has been able to play organized baseball, especially those with special needs.

That’s where the Alternative Baseball Organization wants to make a difference.

It’s a nonprofit program for teens and adults with autism and special needs who want to showcase their talents on the baseball diamond.

The group holds their 2nd Annual Alternative All Star Game in Marietta this Saturday, which will feature Braves manager Brian Snitker and several other former big leaguers.
