Celebrating the Spectrum

The Alternative Field of Dreams

Diagnosed with autism at four years old, Taylor Duncan was often excluded from playing the game he loved. Baseball. So, as an adult on the spectrum, he hopes no one else with any disability must sit the game out. He has successfully created Alternative Baseball, a traditional baseball setting free of judgment. He focuses on physical and social skills growth through the hands-on authentic experience in all practices and games.  Alternative Baseball is now found in 30 different communities across the county with hundreds of players. In this episode, he talks about the challenges involved with creating the program and some of the greatest moments his teams have experienced on the baseball field.
