This year Chatham Baseball will begin our fifth year of the Buddy Baseball program. Opening Day will be April 11th, 2020.
About Buddy Ball
The Bambino Buddy-Ball Division was established by Babe Ruth baseball for players ages 5-19 who are either physically and/or mentally challenged. Buddy Ball allows challenged or special needs athletes to develop confidence and positive self-esteem. It allows them to be part of organized sports and assists with physical fitness as well as their social skills.
Buddy Ball is designed to give everyone a chance to play baseball and have fun. This division makes allowance for a “buddy” to help the player swing a bat, round the bases, catch a ball, etc.
All Buddy Ball games will be held on Saturday's at 4:45pm at Lum Field for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Sessions will include a 45 minute practice followed by a 30 minute game. The season will end on Saturday, June 6th.
"Buddies" will primarily consist of high school-aged baseball players and will be coordinated through the Chatham High School Sports Buddies Club. If you are interested in becoming a buddy, please contact Matt Saluzzi at MSaluzzi34@gmail.com
