A special group of little leaguers took to the field over the holiday weekend.
Every Saturday, two teams of children living with developmental disabilities play a game of softball in Ozone Park.
Coaches and volunteers from WORKS Little League help move the game along by assisting with pitching and by offering both offensive and defensive tips.
"I don't feel like we help them, I feel that we play with them because they don't need the help. They're good enough," said Marc Sabran, a volunteer with WORKS Little League.
No one keeps score and each little leaguer gets a chance to step up to the plate.
Volunteers said that this group of children holds a special place in their hearts.
"This here is the best part of our week, the kids come in they play baseball, there is fun, everybody has fun. There is no winning, no loosing. As long as the kids play and you see smiles on their faces," said Walter Chaluisant, the President of WORKS Little League.
For the last nine years, WORKS Little League has had teams and games dedicated to working with children who have special needs.
According to their website, the Philosophy and goal of Little League Baseball is to teach good citizenship, build character, and team work through the game of baseball.
They organization claims to have more than 700 volunteer members that consist of players, coaches, managers, umpires etc.
