Newton Tigers Have Competitive Fun Providing Sports for Special Needs Kids (Video)

The Newton Tigers are a great local program that gives special needs kids the opportunity to play sports, be outside and have fun. Recently, a NESN Connects crew was lucky enough to have the chance to drop by, play some softball and see what makes the Tigers such a great group.

The Tigers have been going strong for 13 years now, and was the brainchild of two Newton dads. Providing the opportunity to play sports to those with special needs was a simple idea, but it’s clearly made all the difference in the lives of some.

Check out the video above from NESN’s visit with the Tigers.
