A great reason to play ball

On Saturday, Frontier Community Services hosted its annual World Series Baseball event at the Soldotna Little League fields. The event gives people with developmental disabilities the opportunity to participate in the great American pastime. Participants span a wide range of ages and abilities, but the event promises one thing: if you want to play ball, there will be a way for you to play.

The event also serves another purpose, that of raising awareness in the community of people with disabilities. Too often, people with challenges are isolated from the rest of our community. An event like the World Series allows them to take part, and gives an opportunity for the rest of the community to interact with them — something that we can carry over to our everyday lives.

We’re glad to see the World Series Baseball event continue to thrive, and we’re already looking forward to next year’s game. Play ball!
