Alternative Baseball Starts Teams in Auburn, AL & Newnan, GA

Baseball is more than just a game for 22-year- old Taylor Duncan.

Duncan is on the autism spectrum and growing up, he wanted to be a part of a team more than anything.

But, the rejections did not stop him.

He was determined to play and that’s why he started his own league called Alternative Baseball.

A league for those 15 and older who have autism or special needs.

The program goes by the rules of Major League Baseball.

Duncan started the program in 2016 back in his hometown of Dallas, Georgia.

But, he wanted to spread the program even further and that’s how he got in contact with Columbus native & Baseball coach Kyle Carter as well as former Braves player Johnny Estrada and former Bluejays player Evan Crawford.

Carter started the Columbus Cobras and has his team together.

Estrada started the Newnan Braves and hopes to get his team together by Spring, so he’s looking for about 12 players!

Same with Crawford in Auburn. They have their field. He now needs players and a team name! He’s hoping to get his team together by the Summer.

But, there’s no limit. Whoever wants to be on the team can sign up.

They are looking for coaches/managers and other cities interested in creating a team.
