A boy with Down syndrome became the hero of the Internet after showing some brilliant moves to celebrate his athletic success.
Baseball is there for everyone, and Kristine Fitzpatrick believes that's true, which is why she's League of JA, a baseball league for people of all ages with special needs.
League of YES hosts weekend games in New York, and at a game in late April, Fitzpatrick has made a video of an incredible homerown celebration. 19659004] The video shows Billy, who has Down syndrome. He hit a ball from a tee – each hit was a home run – and started with several volunteers who cheered Billy on the run to the bases.
When he met third base, a few volunteers were waiting to give him five as he ran the line home. But shortly before the home plate he stopped and made some serious, fun dance steps.
Anyone who fell down when he touched the home plate was the perfect seducer of this epic home run.

Fitzpatrick told CBS News that Billy already had a run at home, but after seeing his special homerown celebration, she wanted to make sure she got him on video the second time around.
Fitzpatrick launched League of YES in 2010, and in eight years has grown from 30 players and 30 volunteers to 300 players and 1,400 volunteers.
She told CBS News that this type of activity is vitally important for children with special needs
"We also want to show the world that our community needs special needs in their lives," she said Fitzpatrick.
"I can tell you one story after another, in which the children experience their joy of playing in a team and also the self-confidence that they have built up on and off the field."
Great Job Billy, it was your special day, buddy.
