Looking for Buddy Ball participants


The Grove City Buddy Ball League is recruiting players and peer volunteers for the inaugural 2016 season.

In addition to traditional youth baseball teams playing this spring, there is a new league in Grove City for players ages 5 to 17 with special needs. The Grove City Buddy Ball League connects players with unique needs with peer volunteers to ensure their first team sports experience is a safe and successful endeavor for everyone.

Each player is paired with a volunteer buddy to support them in baseball skills such as hitting, throwing, catching and base running. All volunteers are trained to support participant needs while allowing them to be as independent as possible. The brand new Grove City Mirolo Dream Field at Mount Carmel Stadium eliminates the physical barriers of playing on a conventional grass baseball field. Buddy Ball is an opportunity for everyone to develop baseball skills while building an inclusive community. Participants and spectators have the opportunity to encourage all kids to achieve and cheer on their team.

Children ages 5 through 17 are eligible to participate. The cost is $30 for one athlete, additional family members are $15 each.
