About Jackson’s Pitch for Autism
Former professional baseball player, Bill Gross, founded Jackson’s Pitch for Autism in December 2012. Bill’s son Jackson was diagnosed with autism in 2010 and he wanted to “give back and help other families” after Jackson made great strides with the help of local autism programs and the Norfolk School System. With a mission to build awareness, advocate and provide resources to area non-profit organizations that directly support children, adults, and families impacted by autism spectrum disorders, Jackson’s Pitch raises funds and awareness through baseball-themed fundraising events. Bill has been a member of the HMEA Board of Directors since 2011 and in 2019 Jackson’s Pitch became a program of HMEA.
