JACKSON, Tenn.-Another spring-time tradition is back in West Jackson.

Special Needs Athletics, a weekly event to provide support and opportunities through various sports for those with special needs and their families, was held Thursday night at the West Tennessee Healthcare Sportsplex.

Spring baseball brought out another great crowd of supporters and participants.

"It gives them the opportunity to get together with their friends, gives them exercise, brings them great joy," said Anne Michael with Special Needs Athletics.

New athletes and volunteers are always welcome at the event.
