BGRA Buddy Baseball

Buddy Ball 2020 

Welcome to the 26th season of Buddy Ball. Our Buddy league started in 1994, and allows children with special needs to play baseball by pairing them up with able-bodied buddies. The buddies help their players as needed, whether it be pointing to where the ball should be thrown, helping them run bases, or just sharing in the fun. All BGRA members and players are encouraged to experience a Buddy Ball game either as a participant or spectator and discover what the joy of baseball is all about. 

Buddy Ball is split into two leagues:
Junior Buddy Ball (Age 5-14) - Play from late April thru late June. Games are played Wednesdays @5:30 p.m. and Saturdays @ 9:30 a.m

Senior Buddy Ball (Age 15+) - Play from late April thru end of July. Games are played Thursdays @ 6 p.m. and Saturdays @ 11:30 a.m.

A jersey, baseball pants, and hat are included in the registration fee of $75. To register Click Here or on the "Registration" link at the top of the page.
