BROOKLYN - More than 25 autistic and developmentally disabled adults and senior citizens recently learned how to play baseball in Scaragella Park.

The workshop was offered by Bringing Back Baseball and the Block Institute, an organization that services developmentally disabled and autistic adults.

Organizers say the workshop helps develop skills, including hand-to-eye coordination and focus, but can also improve self-esteem and build a sense of team work.

This workshop will run for eight weeks, and will culminate with a championship game.
