Autism: Fathers, Sons, The Yankees & Autism

Here’s a good post by WCBSTV.com Senior Sports Producer Jeff Capellini, who recently took his 7-year-old son to his first Yankee game. The deafening cheers that followed a grand slam were not what the dad of a PDD-NOS kid was looking for, but, as you’ll see, dad and son got something out of the game, anyway.

I might have been the only person in the Bronx on Sunday who didn’t do backflips when Jorge Posada crushed that grand slam against the Houston Astros.

As the ball sailed deep into a sea of humanity in right center I was instantly beamed to a place I feared I’d visit at some point during my 7-year-old son’s first visit to Yankee Stadium.

It was damage control time in the world of the autistic spectrum.
