Last week hundreds of families and MLB, NFL, and NBA legends came out to join CTX Ability Sports and MLB Players Alumni for their Inclusion Baseball Clinic in Pflugerville, TX. Every year this event gives kids with all abilities the opportunity to get out on the field, learn life lessons, and have fun.
It was incredible to participate and witness the joy of sports this program gives to children who wouldn’t have the opportunity to experience. This is something that we at CoachTube believe in whole-heartedly, and we were proud to help capture the amazing things CTXAS and their partners are doing to promote inclusion in sports.

This is probably the first and largest Major League Baseball Players Alumni inclusion baseball clinic where we have children with all abilities, not just disabilities, learning life lessons and life lessons. – John Lorek, Executive Director of Central Texas Ability Sports
Any kid, any skill level can play baseball. You don’t have to be in the big leagues to get out on the field and have a good time. – Micah Bowie, Major League Baseball Players Alumni Representative
This was the most amazing event that I have attended! Certainly I have had the opportunity to attend many I Can Do It, You Can Do It celebrations across the country and this event today was just incredible. It’s really been a great day for community and really bringing the community together to celebrate inclusion. – Lauren Darensbourg, U.S. President’s Council on Fitness, Sports, & Nutrition
