8-Year-Old Boy in Wheelchair Is Signed on as Baseball Team Coach

When a young Brenden Lowery made his way onto the football field while sitting in a wheelchair, the crowd and online world couldn't get enough of the uplifting event.

The baseball team dubbed the Kalamazoo Growlers posted a heartwarming video on their Facebook page. The clip showed 8-year-old Brenden Lowery in a wheelchair acting as the coach for that day's game. 

One of the players pushed the young and excited boy onto the field towards the rest of the sports team. He wore the same blue and white colors of the baseball league, with "coach" written on the back of his t-shirt.

His wheelchair also matched the shades of the Kalamazoo Growlers' uniforms. The sports commentator elaborated on the youngster's presence at the game, stating:

"And with that comes a mound visit from Brenden Lowery signed on a one-day contract with the Kalamazoo Growlers."

He announced that the young boy is originally from the local Challenger Little League. The 8-year-old stood in the center of all the teammates, where he adorably provided them with instructions on their fielding positions. 

Once Brenden was done providing them with instructions, the baseball players quickly dispersed to fill their spots on the field. The same teammate who took him onto the grass then slowly began pushing him off. 

As he started walking back across with the 8-year-old, the crowd suddenly erupted. The baseball player and the boy tipped their hats off to them as the benches continued to roar in praise.

Goodable also shared the touching story on their Twitter page. Taking to this post, they expressed how wonderful the gesture was, writing:

"It's the best sports video you'll see all day."

Two individuals replied to the social media share, exclaiming how beautiful the story is. The Tweet has received around 30 retweets and 234 likes so far.

A MEMORABLE MOMENT

In another feel-good anecdote, a special needs boy had a big day while playing football with his local Pop Warner team. With a tiny bit of help, Brantley Watson managed to score his first touchdown

The coach from the other team permitted the 7-year-old to take a handoff while the players moved out of the way so he could sprint to the end-zone. His mother was present and said that she would never forget that day.

BEATING THE ODDS

While Brantley enjoyed a celebratory day on the football field, Hayden Hamilton from Laurel High School in Pittsburgh was not so lucky. During a game, he experienced a hit that left him paralyzed from the neck down. 

However, Hamilton managed to rise above the challenge. During his graduation ceremony, he got up and walked to receive his diploma. In awed response, the audience gave the young man a standing ovation.
