Children with disabilities learn baseball at 13th annual Home Run Heroes

BISMARCK, N.D. - For some children, playing a sport might be difficult because of a disability.

With help from physical therapy students at the University of Mary, children were able to play baseball.

"It takes (the students) out of their comfort zone a little bit, we take them out of the classroom and get them interacting them kids of all ages. We have kids as young as four here," said UMary Associate Professor of physical therapy, Dr. Missy Taylor.

Physical therapy students at UMary started the event in 2007 after hearing about a similar activity in Minot. Two more Home Run Heroes events will take place on Feburary 2nd and 9th.
