Although back in the 1990’s, not much was known about autism, one thing was certain; this charismatic little boy was here to change the world.  Through the sport of baseball, his story educated and inspired countless people.  Adam may have been lost at times in his own little world, but his drive to be like others was the key that opened the door for many today.

Through his presentation, education was provided that changed attitudes and enhanced access to appropriate care.  He instilled hope in all of us along the way and continues to do so as a young adult. This webpage is dedicated to all those who desire something inspirational to hold onto.
