From Real Sports: 25-year-old RJ Peete is a clubhouse attendant with the Los Angeles Dodgers. The job is a dream come true for RJ, who was diagnosed with autism at three years old. On the day of his diagnosis, doctors told RJ’s parents – former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete and actress Holly Robinson Peete – that he wouldn’t be able to do most things, including hold down a meaningful job. While there were certainly bumps in the road, the Peete family’s support, along with the Dodgers willingness to open its organization’s doors to RJ, has transformed RJ’s life and helped him blossom into a high-functioning, sociable young man who is beloved by his coworkers at Dodger Stadium.
