Extra Innings – The Linn Hendershot Story
WINNER BEST DOCUMENTARY 2023
Maryland International Film Festival

At a time when disabled populations were considered “crippled” and doomed to a life of inertia, Linn used perseverance and persuasion to change perceptions and break into sports and racing—industries at that time, not accessible to anyone with a disability. This was before the ADA. Before there were any accommodations for people with disabilities in the U.S.

He served a lead role on the 1996 Atlanta Olympics Committee on Disability Access—going up against the Goliath of money and power—and coming out a winner with many improvements made to ensure the venues were more accessible. He not only defied the odds of survival, recovering in a hospital from severe pneumonia, but he spearhead the creation of a computer lab and a therapeutic garden while he was there so he and his fellow patients could connect with the outside world.

Linn made it known that he wasn’t here to make a career. He was here to make a difference and with the help of family and friends… he did.
