In the Spotlight
By Dominick Petrillo
Before starting with the following story of my life and in some sense downturn and redemption, I would like to state I am not a professional writer yet. I am a determined sports enthusiast; I love to write, doing so to the best of my abilities. I would also like to share a quick story about my development, something I did not learn until later in life.
To say that Bryce Weiler has overcome adversity in his life is a massive understatement.
He was born four months prematurely and developed an eye condition called retinopathy of prematurity that caused blindness. But that didn't stop Bryce.
After college, Bryce began developing programs for fans with disabilities, including the Field of Dreams. The first teams to join him in his work were the Baltimore Orioles and the New Britain Bees baseball teams. Partnering with the owner of the Bees, he then co-founded for the Beautiful Lives Project.
Bryce would like to spread the word about Beautiful Lives Project and would make a great guest for any sports talk show or podcast. You can reach Bryce at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at 812-899-5673.
