On a Sunday Afternoon in DC I was teaming up with the Washington Nationals and Autism Speaks.

On Sunday I attended the Washington National’s game to benefit Autism Speaks. It was in section 203 that I spent the afternoon surrounded by autism families, advocates and supporters watching a great game between the Phillies and the Nat’s. It couldn’t have been a more beautiful day.


Major League Baseball teamed up with Autism Speaks, in a league-wide effort to recognize Autism Awareness. The MLB Autism Awareness games throughout the league will provide special opportunities and a safe, friendly environment for families and individuals affected by autism.


It’s great to see the MLB teaming up with Autism Speaks. “Autism affects many of our fans and members of the baseball family,” said Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig. “Many Clubs are longstanding supporters of the autism community. As an extension of those efforts, Major League Baseball is very proud to educate our fans through the MLB Autism Awareness initiative.”


Please be sure to check your local Ballpark to see if they are teaming up with Autism Speaks so you can attend and support as well. A portion of all sales goes directly to Autism Speaks.
