ABSTRACT
The article presents information related to sports-hungry wheelchair users and the game of Baseball. The game doesn't demand constant attention but it allows to flow in and out of the action while chatting with family and friends. As the game proceeds, the action intensifies and thus making spectators to enjoy each and every moment of the game. Unlike any other sport, baseball allows intimacy among family and friends. This game also allows its fans, who use wheelchairs, to enjoy the game in less harried conditions, better parking, and fewer crowds.
