Meet James

Meet James! This 12-year-old is an energetic boy with a kind heart and passion for helping others. James lives with Down syndrome, but he doesn’t let his condition hold him back from sharing his love of life and love of others!

James plays baseball with his peers and has developed a deep love for the game. He watches baseball games on tv, plays baseball video games, and loves collecting baseball cards. James is a loyal fan of his heroes Bryce Harper and Trea Turner since their debuts with the Washington Nationals, and is so excited to cheer them on with the Philadelphia Phillies!

When James isn’t watching, playing, or reading about baseball, you can find him spending time with his dog Sammie, going bowling, and eating tacos.

James has been chosen as a Dream Recipient by the George Washington University Collegiate Dream Team after being referred to the Dream On 3 team by our friends at Open Door Sports. These GWU students are excited to help him achieve his sports Dream and show James that If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It!
