A League of Their Own

This past Monday, September 17, the Union Braves played against the Dallas Blue Hornets. The game was held at Union Park. Union Recreation has sought to provide a baseball program for children between the ages of 4 to 18 years old, having mental and/or physical disabilities the opportunity for a baseball program. Coach and founder John Whorton had been asked by a parent if there was such program available to special needs children, and at the request, the idea to form "a league of their own" was founded.
For this first game, Union Braves team members were paired with a player from the Sara Babb bombers. The game was structured so that all of the children could participate and have a good time playing. They're planning to have games Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays this season at the rate of 1 to 2 games per week.
For anyone looking to participate but please contact John Whorton of Union Recreation, email:
