Luke Bocach knows that a sport like baseball doesn’t just take practice, it takes determination. He’s 14 years old and was diagnosed with spina bifida, but he doesn’t let that keep him away from the baseball field.
“I love the sport, so there’s nothing to quit,” Bocach said. “If I love, no reason to quit.
When Bocach first joined Challenger Baseball, an adaptive program for children with disabilities, he was still able to run and walk. But when he met Pierce Meck, a volunteer for the program, the Meck family quickly realized it was Luke’s love for baseball that gave him the persistence to play the game.
