Kids with special needs play with Indians players, coaches

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Indianapolis-area youth with special needs hit Victory Field on Saturday afternoon to learn from the pros.

Indianapolis Indians players and coaches instructed about 200 kids on basic baseball fundamentals. There were four different skills stations where players and coaches worked side-by-side with youth.

The kids. who came from Indy’s Damar Services, even got to give batting practice a try and work on defensive skills.

“Having the opportunity of just being on the field is exciting enough for them. But, actually having the opportunity to play with the players and get some hands on experience from them is just amazing,” Nicole Woods, the Damar communication director said.

Damar provides residential and community-based treatment and support and education services to special needs children and adults of all ages all across central Indiana.
