Do the kids in wheelchairs have an unfair advantage since they're on wheels and can roll to a base?

Conversely, how is a kid on crutches not easily thrown out before making it to first base?

The kid throwing him out is counting the stitches on the ball first.

Their t-ball stand has shattered records, pitching perfect games back to back for a whopping 162 games.

Looks like the Pirates are going to have an opponent who can play down to their level.

The person fielding the ball is also either in a wheelchair or on crutches or has some other disability.  A putout is rare.  Everyone bats every inning.  Yes, there are only 3 or 4 innings.

yea, this is what I've seen the special needs programs near me do.  One of my sisters participated as well, and all the kids seem to love it.

Sean Casey helped build one of these in Pittsburgh. It's pretty cool. He's out there a lot helping out too.

I've helped build one of those fields and raise money for another one. They are cool as can be, and they thought of everything. The rubberized and softer surfaces are even latex free for kids who have developed latex allergies.

All snarkiness aside, there is far more need for something like this than you can imagine. Sure, cures for these diseases need to be found, but let an 8 year old be an 8 year old for an hour with some friends.
