PAMONA, Kan. — A 7-year-old girl was banned from running the bases in her softball tournament after some say she was breaking the rules.
Gracie Ferguson has Spina Bifida and uses a wheelchair. Once she hits the ball, she relies on a coach to push her.
According to WDAF, the system worked until the last game of the season, when a member of the league said Ferguson needed a pinch runner.
Her mother calls it discrimination. The league said this is the first time it has had to accommodate a child with special needs and will need to reexamine its policies.
