Buddy Sports recognizes long-time key supporter


Mississippi Gulf Coast Buddy Sports recently honored Barry Dreyfus, Jr., a long-time key supporter and sponsor of Buddy Ball.

Dreyfus is the CEO of United States Marine, Inc., which builds high performance boats and other vessels for the armed forces. One of the company’s values is family, which is reflected in their partnership with Mississippi Gulf Coast Buddy Sports. Dreyfus and his team have provided hundreds of tickets for players and families of Buddy Ball to enjoy a day of baseball with the Biloxi Shuckers.

Mississippi Buddy Sports organizers say they could not provide the opportunities they do for families and children with special needs to enjoy sports and the outdoors without the support of their loyal sponsors and volunteers.
