Strike Out Autism Saturday: The Shore Conference's Autism Awareness Day resumes this season after a two-year absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic and returns with a new look for 2022. Unlike past years, when sites around the Shore hosted four teams for a double-header and raised money at each game, this year will simply be isolated games at which money will be raised. Strike Out Autism began in 2013 and is the creation of Central Regional head coach Jerry Frulio.
