ATLANTA - Atlanta area baseball players are now preparing for a very special baseball all-star game.
Players are part of a group called the Alternative Baseball Organization, a developmental baseball program for teens and adults with autism and special needs.
The game may be several months away, but program participants gathered at SunTrust Field Tuesday morning for a baseball skills clinic.
The program's director said baseball helps program participants in multiple ways.
Professional baseball players from all over the United States will also play in the all-star game.
It will be held at Mount Paran North Church Baseball Park in Marietta on November 11.
