WheelChair Softball

It was a softball game filled with laughter and the usual banter. “Hey, batter, batter. Swing, batter, batter.” Played in sports wheelchairs by physically disabled athletes ranging from 11 to middle age, joined by some family members and event organizers on the Covelli Centre blacktop parking lot early Tuesday evening, no one kept score and no one seemed to care. The wheelchair softball event is the first of four games offered by the Adoptive Sports Program of Ohio (ASPO), in conjunction with the Youngstown City Park Department, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays at the Covelli Centre parking lot
