The Alternative Baseball Organization is looking for a volunteer coach/manager, volunteers and players to help start new programs serving those in Sedalia, Warrensburg and surrounding areas.
Alternative Baseball was started by Taylor Duncan, of Dallas, Georgia, who has autism. It is a 501c3 authentic baseball experience for teens 15 and older and adults with autism and other disabilities to gain social and physical skills. Players can be of all experience levels.
The new programs are tentatively set to start in late spring/summer 2021. Alternative Baseball also has clubs in more than 30 states that are also preparing for their late spring start dates.
The program follows Major League rules (wood bats, base stealing, dropped third strike, etc.), and is a true typical team experience for others on the autism spectrum and special needs to help develop social skills for later in life.
