At first sight, it appears that the story is the fact that this 11 year old boy plays baseball, golf and football with a disability. He is deaf. I was interested just to see how he navigates his game not being able to hear the crack of the bat, the pop of the golf club against the ball, and the calls of the quarter back. Quickly it became evident that the real story is that the youth baseball league that thousands of children around the world play in, had discriminated against him and his special needs for his disability. So his parents fought the system, and after a year of struggle, they were able to change the system, teach their son a valuable lesson, and see the results of their battle with the success and play of other children with disabilities.
