Taylor Duncan, commissioner/director of the Alternative Baseball Organization, says the organization is fielding a new team here in Evansville.
The Alternative Baseball Organization aims to offer an authentic baseball experience for teens and adults with autism and other disabilities to gain social and physical skills for success in life on and off the diamond.
Duncan says that the organization has found a new manager in Evansville to head the new team in the area, and the organization is now looking for more volunteers and plans to begin post-pandemic in early summer/fall of 2021.
The program plays by Major League rules (wood bats, base stealing, dropped third strike, etc.), and accepts players of all experience levels.
