The University of Delaware softball team took a break from its rigorous practice and game schedule on Tuesday night to give back to the community, hosting a softball clinic for more than 35 Special Olympics athletes from the Newark and Wilmington Area programs.
“Working with the Special Olympics softball teams was a lot of fun,” UD head coach Jaime Wohlbach said. “Sharing the laughs, passion for the game, and celebrations of skills in the field was a rewarding experience. It was a big win for everyone involved.”
The athletes are practicing for the Special Olympics softball tournament that takes place June 6-7 at the annual Summer Games, held on the University of Delaware campus and Handloff Park in Newark.
Softball is a Unified sport, which pairs athletes with Unified partners (peers without disabilities) on the same team for competition.
