ABOUT BUDDY BALL
Buddy Ball is a non-competitive league for individuals with intellectual and/or physical disabilities of all ages that have a desire to play baseball. These players with special needs are paired with a “Buddy” that assists them in playing the game as independently as possible. All players in this league play in the field, bat, score, and win. Not only does Buddy Ball allow individuals with special needs to play baseball, but it helps them make new friends; some that last a life-time. Buddy Ball is open to individuals ages 4 years and older throughout the South Mississippi area.
