    LMP~

    I serched all over the net to no avail. But I did notice there were listing for many organizations that conduct handicapped sportinging events and outings of that kind.

    Maybe you could contact that type of organization in your area and they may know of a company you could get in touch with.
    Pehaps even ask his phyical therapist.

    That Callenger Baseball Team sounds cool. Wish they had that kind of thing when I was a kid looooong ago.

    Hope This Helps

    Re: adapted baseball glove?

    LMP- My brother played in a challenger league in my hometown and he had the same problem with his glove. My dad had all these little tricks about "softening" up a glove that worked wonders for my brother. Also, you could try going to a place that re-threads mitts. My father had the edge of the fingers cut out and re-threaded to make a mitt that all my brothers fingers could fit in. About the glove softening, I'm not sure what the heck he did, all I know is he had funny cream and used the oven.. Maybe you can find that online? And I don't know where you are located, but maybe a Dick's Sporting Goods or something along those lines can give you a name of a place that re-threads mitts in your area. Best of luck to you
