Baseball player with Down syndrome celebrates "best home run ever" with epic dance moves

A baseball player with Down syndrome is going viral for his impressive dance moves while celebrating a home run.

Billy plays in the League of YES, a baseball club in New York for people of all ages with special needs.

Billy has gone viral after a video of his celebration dance was posted to Facebook after he hit an opening day home run. 

“Best video of the day. Watch the end for the dance,” Kristine Squitieri Fitzpatrick captions the video. 

"We hope that it shows that you can be friends with a child with special needs and to understand that they are just kids, too," Fitzpatrick told CBS News. Fitzpatrick started the League of YES on Long Island in 2010. "We want to break that barrier of acceptance."

Her video of Billy has gone viral- but it is also doing a lot of good.

So far, Fitzpatrick has raised more than $2,000 for the League of Yes Inc.
