29-year-old Ted Kremer has Down’s Syndrome, but it hasn’t stopped him from competing in swimming and ballroom dancing. Last month, he got to be the Reds’ batboy for a day. Now just go read the story. Trust me.

    That’s awesome! I love when baseball does things for those a little less fortunate. The reds do an exceptionally good job in this category with their joe nuxhall foundation and reds rookie success league. This is great.

    I’m dead inside. Nothing, except I’m glad Ted got the memory.

    It’s stories like that that make the world all good and everyday issues so small. Thanx for a great read ..,

    Very nice gesture by the Reds. I admire Ted’s parents for the way they did everything possible to help their son succeed despite the pessimistic projections when he was born.

    Very nice story! Reminds me in a way of Joey Moss, also a Down syndrome fellow, who was hired by the Edmonton Oilers back in the ’80s as dressing room attendant at the suggestion of captain Wayne Gretzky, who was dating Joey’s sister. They broke up, Wayne left town, but I think Joey is still working for the Oilers!
