LA JOLLA, Calif. - In its ongoing effort to make a positive impact on the community, the UC San Diego baseball team welcomed students from the Training Education and Research Institute (TERI) to campus for the fourth annual Playball event on Sunday, Jan. 23. TERI students spent the day at Triton Ballpark learning about the game from UCSD players.

TERI is a private, nonprofit organization based in Oceanside that serves the needs of children and adults with autism and other developmental and learning disabilities and their families. To read more, please visit TERI's site

From pregame warm-ups and the national anthem, to the final at-bat of the day, the visitors from TERI got a first-hand look at what college baseball is all about. Triton student-athletes paired with one or two students each and taught the fundamentals of batting and playing in the field.

Following the game, everyone enjoyed a barbeque together at Triton Ballpark, bringing to a close another successful and rewarding event between TERI and the UCSD baseball program.

"TERI is an incredible organization and our baseball program was honored to host this outstanding event," said UCSD head coach Dan O'Brien. "Our guys did a phenomenal job with the participants, and not only am I proud of them, I'm also proud of TERI for doing so much for these amazing people."
