Holly Robinson Peete Dodgers Manager Hired My Autistic Son ... 'He's the Best'

EXCLUSIVE

FEEL GOOD STORY OF THE DAY!!! 

Holly Robinson Peete says her autistic son, RJ, currently works in the L.A. Dodgers clubhouse ... and it's all thanks to manager Dave Roberts

"My son has autism," Holly said ... and when Roberts first met RJ, he "treated him just like an amazing kid. Gave him a great job."

RJ is 19 years old -- but when he was a little boy, doctors told Holly he would never talk, have friends, go to school or get a job. 

He's done ALL of those things -- thanks to support from incredible people like Dave Roberts. 

"He's just the best," Holly said ... "I'm glad he's our manager."
