Aiden’s Story

Aiden had experienced terrible abuse and was quick to rebel. His foster parents signed him up for baseball at the Y. In the beginning it was a struggle. He wouldn’t listen and would fight with his coach.

Then, a teammate stepped up and gave him a tip. Soon other players stepped up and gave him more hints on how to be a better player. As the coach and team worked with Aiden, he began to bloom.

He was making good throws and catches. His very first hit was a double to right center field. With the success he was having on the field, he was having just as much off the field. His behavior improved and he was working harder in school.

With the help of baseball, Aiden transformed into a strong young man who did not let his challenges in life define him.
