Twelve-year-old Michael Ledford looks forward to playing with the team each week.
"He loves to be outside. He loves to do doughnuts in his wheelchair," said Deanna Roberts, Michael's mom.
Michael has Cerebral Palsey but has been playing baseball for years.
He's part of the Shady Hills Little League Challengers team along with three other players.
"We play against other players so they feel no different. They volunteer, which is amazing," Roberts said.
Roberts also serves as their coach.
"He feels a lot better playing and he feels more like a kid and not different from any other child," Roberts explained.
And now she's hoping to grow their team.
"Just come out just feel like a kid, like, no worries in the world and have fun. And if you don't want to hit you can play in the outfield. If you don't want to play in the outfield you can hit the whole time. There's no rules to us playing," she said.
