Founder and Executive Director of Touching Bases, Bob Baird, describes this unique baseball league. This league is for adults of all ages with disabilities. They follow modified rules, which create a safe environment for players to socialize with each other and to succeed in a game they love. Listeners will enjoy Mr. Baird’s description of games in which the spectators have as much fun as the players. Mr. Baird has helped other communities replicate Touching Bases, now in its 10th year, including folks in the Erie County/Buffalo area and in Richmond, Virginia.
