Our league has a variety of volunteer opportunities. Enthusiasm and compassion are the prerequisites. By giving only a few hours of your time, you will not only make a difference in the life of a child with special needs, but also grow as a person.


Sixth Grade and up | Any qualified individual or group can give individuals with special needs the gift of baseball by volunteering as a Buddy. Our Buddy system pairs each player with a volunteer helper. Buddy training is provided on-site before your shift begins. Working one-on-one with our players will warm your heart and give you a new perspective on life. Sign up by following the Volunteer Registration button.

Goals for our Buddies include:

  • Assist the player according to his/her needs.
  • Protect the player at all times.
  • Allow the player as much freedom as possible to play.
  • Have fun!
