For years, the Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder volunteered with Unified Sports -- a program that allows athletes with and without disabilities to compete as teammates in various sports. Pollock's friend, Tyler, who had Down syndrome, introduced him to Unified Sports, a group Pollock remains involved with to this day, serving as the keynote speaker at the Unified Sports Leadership Summit in January.
