My name is Zartaj Bahadur and I am the head coach of the Boys Baseball Team at J. Clarke Richardson Collegiate (Ajax, Ontario).  I have known Jayden for just over a year now.  Last year was the first year I coached him as a member of JCR’s baseball team. When I first met Jayden, I was impressed by his soft and mild manner.  Despite being a high level baseball player, he never indicated his years of experience as an attempt to skip through tryouts.  His comfort with the game and his natural instincts were instantly noticed by both myself and the other players and he was very quickly seen as a leader on the team. Some of the challenges of coaching a high school Varsity sport are the varied levels combined with the pressures of academics.  Often, I would face the challenge of athletes who were absent due to academic demands.  It was nice, at times like this, to have an experienced player like Jayden who could be put into any position, whether it was ‘his’ position or not, and know that his natural skill, athleticism and instinct would carry him through. Although I have not taught Jayden, my observations of him in the school are positive.  His relationships with his peers and teachers are mature and appear to be respectful.  Zartaj BahadurEnglish TeacherJ.

CANADA JAYDEN JAMES Jayden has partnered with Ben & Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital for Home Runs that Help 

Seven year old Ben loves break dancing, sledge hockey and being a ham. He loves to joke around with his brother, sister and parents and is always on the move. When it comes to baseball, however, there is no contest. It is his favourite activity.

 Ben has cerebral palsy which affects his fine and gross motor skills. Before coming to Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, he could only walk 10 feet independently and had trouble lifting himself off the ground. Through extensive physiotherapy and with specialized orthopedic aids, Ben is able to walk independently, dance and run bases when practicing with his T-ball team. There is no stopping him.

 Holland Bloorview is Canada’s largest kids rehabilitation hospital. The hospital pioneers treatments, technologies, therapies and real-world programs that give children with disabilities, like Ben, the tools to participate fully in life.

Jayden got the opportunity to meet with Ben and they even spent some time playing baseball together in the gym at Holland Bloorview. Jayden is excited to fundraise for the hospital to help Ben and other kids like him reach their full potential.
