Triumph Foundation's forth annual wheelchair baseball
tournament is expected to be another home run.

VAN NUYS, CA — Triumph Foundation is hosting an Over-the-Line wheelchair baseball tournament at Barry A. Sanders Sports Field on Saturday, October 21, 2017. Over 50 people with disabilities, including children, adults and Veterans, will participate in this modified baseball game.

Hundreds of spectators are expected to attend the event to watch 16 teams of three players, consisting of at least one quadriplegic and one paraplegic player, attempt to hit a ball "over the line" into a sectioned-off territory. Teams will compete all day to win the championship.

The field, located at Lake Balboa Park, is specially designed for the use of people with disabilities made with a rubberized surface designed for wheelchairs, walkers, and those with an unsteady gait due to physical disabilities.

Join Triumph to see people who have physical impairments push the limits of their ability.
