PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -
Arizona's Special Olympics softball team is traveling to Los Angeles to compete in the World Games.
Their bus hit the road at around 9:15 Tuesday morning. There are 14 athletes on the team from around the state.
Before the bus departed, friends, family, Howler the Coyote, city council members and community members joined together for a send-off party for the athletes. With nearly 7,000 athletes from across the world and only 304 athletes from the United States, having a team represent Arizona is an amazing athletic success.
