    As a baseball player there's very few feelings better than hitting a home run. I hit a few in my past...a long long time ago. Billy had the time of his life while rounding the bases. He plays in The League Of Yes on Long Island. The League of Yes has a mission to establish and sustain baseball programs for people...of all ages...with disabilities.

    When Billy hit his home run, he rounded first. At second base he flexed and pumped his arms. Rounding third he went through a tunnel of supporters and headed for home. Before he got there, Billy stopped. Then he went into some dance moves. League of Yes volunteers surrounded home plate. After Billy touched home, the volunteers all fell down.  Here...take a look. 

    Founder of the League of Yes, Kristine Squitieri Fitzpatrick says Billy thinks he's famous. She says the big hope is that other towns and states might form a leagues like League of Yes.

    I love stories like this!
