A ceremonial pitch was thrown to Wade Kistner, a senior who plays catcher for Verona, by a special needs child. The event is sponsored by Teamwork Unlimited Foundation a non-profit whose mission is to help those in need, and is designed to heighten awareness about autism, the nation’s fastest growing developmental disorder. Players forgo their school colors to wear specially designed Autism Awareness jerseys with numbers on the back.
