AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION—A lot of us love baseball because the so-called national pastime is participation sport as well as a spectator event. Folks who don’t have a clue about the game can join in the festive atmosphere and have a good time—chatting among ourselves.
Every now and then a reason for having hope about mankind comes into play. This time at Fenway Park in Boston, where an autistic man was having difficulties singing our national anthem.
The following YouTube clip says in 2 minutes why we love the game and gives hope that we do care about our fellow man. It's called human kindness and proves life is a participation event.
So to save you from downloading a site from the Internet go to You Tube and enter the following phrase:
"autistic man singing national anthem gets some help"
Thanks to Michael Evans at San Diego Home/Garden for sending this to this blog.
