New Documentary – Extra Innings: The Linn Hendershot Story

An inspiring film about Linn Hendershot, a man who survived polio, had a successful career (even though on crutches), and ended up in wheelchair and on a ventilator. He lived 11 years on a ventilator and during that time helped many others to find freedom beyond their disabilities and challenges.

Linn Hendershot was a Polio survivor who served during his lifetime and beyond as an inspiration to many. Despite being on crutches, he coached baseball and held several high profile jobs with Bucknell University, the Atlanta Falcons, United States Auto Club, and NASCAR.

After a fall, he was relegated to a wheelchair. This only intensified his resolve to work and be an advocate for others and raise awareness of the challenges and solutions for differently abled people including taking a lead role on the 1996 Atlanta Olympics Committee on
Disability Access.

Later he contracted pneumonia and almost died which left him on a ventilator for the remainder of his life. While in recovery at Western Maryland Hospital Center he started a computer lab for patients to connect with the outside world. He inspired many patients there and others throughout this community as he was even elected as a Hagerstown City Councilman. He was key in helping to shift the health care paradigm at the time.

He created a computer lab for the patients at Western Maryland Hospital so they could connect with the outside world and found assistive technology so they could work the computer despite their disability.

The full length documentary will be released later this year.
