Emotional at-bat for Fairfax baseball manager (VIDEO)

WASHINGTON – It was a heart-tugging example of good sportsmanship that played out on a Fairfax High School baseball field Monday.

Drew Bonner hasn’t batted since he was 11 because of his Duchenne muscular dystrophy. But at “Drew Bonner Night,” the manager of three Fairfax sports teams was the star of the show.

The wheel-chair bound teen was given a ceremonial at-bat.

After being pitched four balls, Drew’s motorized wheelchair zipped to first base, where opposing team members gathered to congratulate him.

Watch the video of his at-bat:
