Wheelchair Softball

Athletes in wheelchairs can play America’s greatest pastime. Instead of playing on a grassy infield, the game is played on a hard surface, such as a parking lot. Wheelchair players also use a 16-inch softball, which allows them to keep one hand on the wheelchair while catching the softball without a glove.

The growing popularity of wheelchair softball has motivated Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital's Wheelchair and Adaptive Sports department to start a team. the Rollin Whitecaps! Softball players love the sound and feel of the crack of a bat against a ball. Players with upper-body mobilty and in manual wheelchairs play the game on a hard surface. Flying around bases on wheels and crossing into home plate feels like freedom.
