A Celebrated…SEASON!!

Seems I just heard about A-League a couple of days ago. What ?? Autism Baseball ? Little League teams for players with AUTISM !? Really? YES, REALLY !! And as the saying goes TIME FLIES when you’re having fun!!

The INAUGURAL SEASON ends this Sat.! Can’t believe how fast and smooth it went…considering (?). I mean, I had A LOT of people looking at me with consternation a few times. I love to chat it up as I go along my way. So, many people I come across know all about AutismHWY & A-League. Just can’t stop talking about them. I see both projects as a WORLD OF HELP!!

And a World of FUN!! I really didn’t think Wyatt would enjoy it as much as he has! Before his AUTISM set in…he would play a little whiffle ball. Hitting and running 2 yr.old style! When we would say, “Hey Batter-Batter” he would lift his leg like a pitcher on the mound ! But, that went away and I didn’t want to push it. I could get him to play ball /catch with me in the pool. So I guess I kind of settled for that. But, no more! This outlet to exercise and interaction with teammates, coaches and friendly families…AWESOME!

Something worth fighting for and celebrating!!! JUST WHAT WE’RE DOING!! Join US this Sunday in San Dimas at Marchant Park! 1-5 P.M. We will be there honoring our players. For giving it a shot! Learning a lot and making friends. Friends with AUTISM! What a concept. So many would have you believe that, that is impossible. Yet, we parents, coaches, teachers, siblings and care-givers …KNOW BETTER! We witnessed it! A pure success for kids and adults. It was a little bumpy here and there…but just like any good ride you just hold on and don’t let go!!

Which is EXACTLY RIGHT!! We will keep the ball rolling with a SUMMER/FALL Season!! All the info can be found at the SDLL website! You can click on from our Interesting Site section on the left!! Registration will be at the ballpark this Sunday and next Saturday! NOW back to the Celebration at hand!! We are really looking forward to this! There will be Games and Food for mind and belly! An Awesome Raffle…for FUN PRIZES…An Amazing Performance by an Amazing Band…ARREST MY SISTER for fantastic entertainment !! Last but not least the CELEBRATION of this accomplishment! The Accomplishment of starting out a season and seeing it through! A season like NO~OTHER, that had never been done before!! MAKING HISTORY …acquiring friends…learning the game… while having FUN!!

IT CAN’T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THAT!!

FULL Steam…AHEAD!!

This Monday nite’s Board meeting was the presentation of our finalized plan for Autism Division SUMMER / FALL Little League! OUR NEW Self Esteem/Social Skills Group!! Hot Fun in the CITY , The City of San Dimas!! How could I get so lucky?? To live right here in the hub of this historical venture!! Normally for a summer activity Wyatt & I would go to our local Regional center. His case worker would have funding for 2 weeks of a summer day program. This summer not possible, due to the states budget problems.

Lucky for us we will pay a very reasonable amount of cash for FUN, SOCIALIZATION and SELF~ESTEEM!! Unbelievable, “BANG FOR YOUR BUCK if you ask me !! I seriously have never seen ANYTHING quite like what we are seeing here at Marchant Park!! Not ONLY are these players progressing with their gameplay. Improving and aquiring skills they never knew they had. They are becoming a tight knit group!!

WHAAAT??

Did you catch THAT?? I said they are becoming tight knit… and I am not kidding! A-LEAGUE, is bringing something to these players lives… that is NEW. New and very EXCITING! To watch these kids play is pure poetry! Not in the same sense as the rest of the S.D.L.L. Our players will never make the ALL~STARS for their continued stellar performances. We undoubtedly will not be fighting and jockeying our players for college ball and beyond. We are as previously stated… just happy to be under the sun, shootin the breeze …while watching our angels “DO WHAT THEY DO!

No pressure styles, ALL imperfections welcome! No derision, NO breaking spirits, just good pure unaffected fun!! Truly…a little AUTISM won’t hurt anybody. The way our kids are wired is something NEW for Little League and a little alien to the intense competetive nature. Our kids are just more CHILL!! We are hoping to have all our current A-Leaguer’s return. In addition to that an influx of more!! Lora & I talked to alot of people at the Autism Speaks walk in Pasadena last month. All of our interested friends are WELCOME !This is a very accepting and nurturing enviornment- so give it a shot. Your child WILL SURPRISE YOU

GUARANTEED !! I have seen these players independently thinking about their teammates!! So unheard of in A.S.D. individuals…or so we’ve been told. Perhaps, we just were’nt seeing it from the proper perspective in the past. Now… we are seeing it in a whole NEW LIGHT! Very illuminating indeed! Here’s hoping so many more will see this light! The LIGHT that self-esteem and self worth TURN-ON. This is what A- league has done , is doing and WILL CONTINUE TO DO.

This opportunity has TURNED ON a light so to speak in our kids. Autism has many dark moments. So feeling this light~ this connection… is hard to describe to people that are in THE DARK about AUTISM. That being said! Check out this INCREDIBLE Scheduele! We will end this season. June 5th with our Last game. On Sun. June 6th we will be having our CELEBRATION come on by between 2-4 to register. The following Sat. June 12th will be Our S.D.L.L. Closing Day Ceremony. Again come on out Celebrate The kids of S.D.L.L.! and another registration will be available 1 to 3 P.M. Click Here for OUR… SUMMER SESSION SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

Please consider this for your child …we are seeing and feeling the amazing results. The results of allowing some amazing people the opportunity to excel in the fashion they are able with complete adoration and acceptance!! NO MATTER , they will never win the tournament. That is not the point for Our League we are a winner PURELY because we’ve shown up. Trophies, plaques and pins are weak in comparison to the smiles excitement and friendships our children are enjoying.

AS WE DO WHAT WE DO!! Thankyou very much…..
