Holly Robinson Peete’s son RJ Peete brought tears to her eyes before she sang the National Anthem at the L.A. Dodger’s Autism night. Plus, T.I. & Tiny’s son King and Major Harris get “back-to-school” fresh in a new promo shoot for a kid’s clothing line. Get it all inside….
It was autism night at Dodger Stadium in L.A. last night as the Dodgers went head-to-head against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Actress Holly Robinson Peete came out to celebrate the event as she was tapped to kick off the game with a performance of the National Anthem.
The whole Peete family was there, including Holly's husband Rodney Peete, son RJ Peete, daughter Ryan Peete, son Roman Peete and her mom Dolores Robinson, to enjoy a fun night out.
Roman had his game face on.
RJ, who has autism, brought tears to his mother's eyes before she took center field as she was overjoyed at the many accomplishments he has attained thus far. She revealed doctors told her and her husband that their son would never have a regular job or be able to live on his own. But RJ is proving them all wrong. He's is now a clubhouse attendant for the Dodgers. Plus, at last night's game, he caught the first ball from another young man with autism. Sweet!

In a series of IG videos, Holly talks about how much RJ has grown and how proud she is to be his mom:
RJ surprised me and came out on the field with his uniform on and I think I'm about to lose it! I'm about to sing the national anthem and this kid just never stops making me cry! The fact that the Dodgers have embraced my son just melts me everytime I think about it.This is a boy we were told would never be on his own speak or have friends and now he has a whole dugout full of friends!!! #dodgers #autism #night
So tonight after I sang the national anthem for the Dodgers on autism night my son RJ-who is a clubhouse attendant for the Dodgers -came out and surprised us dressed in uniform and then got a chance to hang out in the Dugout with his boys!!! Words can't even describe what it means to me to have my son work for the Dodgers organization. How these men have embraced him melts my heart. When he was 3 we were told he would never have a regular job and be able to live on his own. We are so grateful to the Dodgers for how they have embraced our son and are setting the example for corporate America to hire young people with Autism because they are valuable and amazing!! Our son went from having very few friends to a Dugout full of friends!! #ForPeetesSake
Aww! RJ was their good luck charm. The Dodgers defeated the Phillies, 9-3.
By the way, the Peete's reality show "For Peete's Sake," has been renewed for season 2 on OWN.
