Breaking Ground 112 - A First in Baseball History
A first in baseball history: players with disabilities and former professional players took the field together for a 9-inning exhibition game. The game was held at AT&T Field in Chattanooga on November 5, 2022. Players came from 12 states to participate in this historic classic.
