Going to Bat for Down syndrome

The TV series "Facing Life Head On" episode "Going to Bat for Down syndrome"airs across the USA and Canada.

"As the third baseman for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Andy LaRoche is making a name for himself in the sports world. But he’s also trying to make a name for himself off the field. Andy has a passion for touching the lives of children with Down syndrome. He’s inviting these children and their families to spend time with him at the ballpark. They play on the field, meet the team and take in a game. One little girl who’s formed a special friendship with Andy is Chloe Kondrich. Chloe was born to Kurt and Margie Kondrich six years ago. After her birth, they were given mostly negative information at the hospital regarding Down syndrome. But that didn’t matter to them. Kurt and Margie knew Chloe was here for a reason and they knew she was destined to become a cherished member of their family and community. For Andy, spending time with Chloe and other kids has been one of the highlights of the time he’s spending playing baseball in Pittsburgh. It says a lot about the impact children with Down syndrome can have on people."
