Buddy Ball

Buddy Ball


BJLBA believes that every child should have the opportunity to participate and fall in love with baseball.  The Buddy Ball program helps make that dream a reality for children with disabilities.  With the help of a special “buddy” to swing a bat, round the bases or catch a ball, ballplayers are able to experience the thrills of the game.

The buddy ball program is designed to foster confidence and self-esteem, make memories and have fun.  An emotionally rewarding experience for all, “buddies” achieve satisfaction from their involvement while the athletes benefit from the opportunity to participate in organized sport and physical fitness.

The 2017 Games will be tentatively held at the Winslow Sports Complex on Saturday’s at 5:00 PM beginning May 6 and run through June 17.

The registration fee is $15. Fee waivers are available, if needed.
