NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball and its teams will conduct an Autism Awareness campaign this season.

Each club selected a home game as part of the effort, which will be joined by the advocacy organization Austism Speaks.

Some teams will have designated “quiet zones,” the commissioner’s office said Thursday, designed to be a sensory-friendly environment. The campaign will include ceremonial first pitches, national anthems, “God Bless America” and “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.”
