Royals Work to Accommodate Fans with Autism

The Kansas City Royals are trying to make Kauffman Stadium friendly to baseball fans on the autism spectrum.

Large, loud crowds are hard on many people with autism... and ballparks present some of their biggest challenges. Professional sports teams, including the Royals, are beginning to realize this and make some accommodations. Laura Ziegler reports from Kaufman Stadium in Kansas City.
