ALTERNATIVE BASEBALL(R) is a non-profit who brings a true baseball experience to teens and adults 15+ with autism and other special needs.
Taylor Duncan founded the Alternative Baseball Organization to provide an outlet with many different purposes and goals for teens and adults with autism and other special needs… The purpose of the program is to provide a competitive, yet accepting, environment to accept those for who they are, encouraging to be the best they can be, and to instill the confidence for each player to fulfill their dreams in or outside the sport of baseball. In short, the program is in an endless pursuit to break barriers and to power through perceptions. This includes participation in practices with drills (such as warm-up stretches, batting practice, drills for fielding/baserunning, etc.), real umpired games, experiences tailored to each player’s ability level, and on occasion, special events which are heavily promoted to the public. Alternative Baseball provides players with the experience to learn and grow their social skills for later in life.
