It’s hard to write a story about baseball and avoid the clichés; American’s favorite pastime was practically invented for them.
But words like perseverance, determination and will are anything but trite when it comes to describing the team that Paul Roberts coaches. Some of his players round the bases using wheelchairs. Some use walkers. And some run, flat out, like the wind, the disabilities they live with not as visible as their teammates’.
What unites them isn’t a cliché either, although it might sound like one: heart, these kids have it in spades.
