COOPER — On April 14, the Cooper number one team of the 11-12-year-old boys started their season with a win against the Cumby Trojans.  The Cooper number two team started their season with a win against the Commerce Cardinals coming back from a 9-5 deficit in the bottom of the last inning.  The Cooper number one team beat Cumby 6-2.  However this night was not about winning a ball game it was about something much bigger that happened to a very happy boy on the Cumby team named Taylor.

Taylor is mentally challenged and when Taylor bats, his idea to swing is swing when he hears the ball hit the catcher’s mitt.  Needless to say Taylor swings at everything and always strikes out.  The second time he came up to bat, the Cooper coaches found out that Taylor had never been on base so they decided to intentionally walk him.  His coach told him not to swing and he would get on base.  Taylor was so excited.  He got on first but didn’t stay long; a few hits by Cumby moved him around to third base.  Jadon McGraw struck out two batters and with the bases loaded, Taylor on third, Cooper needed one more out to win the game. The next batter hit a grounder right back to Jadon McGraw on the mound.  He fielded it, went to throw it to the catcher Justin Gibson, and then Jadon realized it was Taylor running home.  He tossed the ball wide where Justin couldn’t catch it and so Taylor could score.  Taylor went wild, filled with excitement after scoring his first run ever.  Everyone on both sides clapped and hollered for Taylor.  All the Trojans came out of the dugout patted him on the back and gave high fives even the Bulldogs congratulated him.  The next batter struck out to end the game and after it Jordan Thompson, a coach from Cooper, gave Taylor the game ball.  The Bulldogs may remember winning this game for a few weeks but for Taylor, he will remember this night for a long time.  Sports isn’t always just about winning, it’s about having fun, living a dream and allowing others the opportunity to do the same.
