Center for Autism and Related Disorders and Autism Speaks Team with the New York Mets for Autism Awareness Day

Center for Autism and Related Disorders and Autism Speaks announced today an event with Major League Baseball's New York Mets for Autism Awareness Day as the Mets play the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday, April 15. The event is one of many sponsored by CARD in its local communities to raise awareness for autism treatment.

“Autism Awareness Month is obviously a very important time for us, but events like this New York Mets game are also a larger part of our yearlong commitment to autism awareness," said April Watts, operations manager at CARD Mamaroneck. "Families dealing with autism will be able to enjoy a fun day of baseball while also allowing them and the greater community a chance to raise money for this worthy cause."

The game takes place Saturday, July 15, with the first pitch scheduled for 1:10pm. A portion of each ticket sold from the online offer will be donated to Autism Speaks, with ticket sales starting at $26. Bud Light Landing seats will be exclusively for guests with family members on the Autism Spectrum. The Mets will lower the volume of the in-game program in this section along with other fan-friendly adjustments. Early gate entry will be available for participating families through the Bullpen Gate beginning at 11:10am. A pre-game party in the Bullpen Plaza will include art therapy projects by the Queens Museum of Art, karate drills by Kicking the Spectrum and more. The Cozy Corner located in the Bullpen Plaza will also be open all game long for children in need of a quiet reprieve from the game. For more information and to buy tickets, please visit

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that one in every 68 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), with one in 42 boys and one in 189 girls diagnosed. These 2014 figures represent a 30 percent increase since 2008. As the prevalence of ASD has increased, services for individuals with ASD have not always kept pace with demand. As a result, families affected by ASD may encounter challenges when trying to access quality treatment. The increase in autism diagnoses and the lack of resources available to families in many communities leave parents struggling to access the services that are crucial to their child's development.
