The Alternative Baseball Organization is looking for players for both the Phenix City team, and the newly announced Columbus team.
ABO Founder Taylor Duncan started the organization so that individuals with special needs would have an opportunity to participate in baseball: something he wasn’t allowed to do as a child. In June, Duncan signed an agreement with two former Atlanta Braves players to launch a team in Phenix City.
Now, partnering with former Little League World Series champion Kyle Carter, Alternative Baseball has two teams in the Chattahoochee Valley.
Both teams hope to begin practicing this fall with games to begin in the spring. They are looking for any baseball fan over the age of 15 with special needs who is interested in playing to sign up.
With ten teams and counting, Duncan takes pride in knowing his league not only provides an opportunity for everyone to play the game he loves, but also helps builds character and social skills.
