Some special players hit the field Saturday morning for a game at Frontier Field.
Dozens of children with physical and developmental disabilities took part in Challenger Baseball, a sport designed to give everyone a chance to play.
Challenger Baseball has two basic rules: every player bats each inning and every player plays the field. Each player also has a buddy to assist them when needed.
There are six Saturday morning games.
Organizers say the participants can't wait for the season to begin.
"They absolutely love it. They look forward to it every year. We have kids that when I start sending stuff out, are calling and saying 'I'm so excited, I want baseball to start, when can we come and pick up our uniforms.' They look forward to it so much every year," said Lisa Walzer, coach of the Greece Little League Challenger Division.
All the players also receive trophies at an end of the season picnic.
