The CDC recently released new data for Autism and now 1 out of every 68 has autism. If you’re not aware of autism then you will be soon as these numbers continues to rise. The good news is that this awareness and compassion has been exhibited in sports. Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association are participating in Autism Awareness this month. While this is great since these are national organizations, here are a few local stories that show awareness by exhibiting inclusion in sports.
- When a Touchdown becomes a Homerun
