Baseball Buddies (Challenger League) Is Back for Seventh Season!
Posted by Paul Bianco on Sep 15 2015 at 05:00PM PDT
We are very excited to share with you the return of Baseball Buddies, a program organized by North Miami Beach Little League (“NMBLL”). Baseball Buddies pairs experienced NMBLL players with youth who have special needs or haven’t had the confidence to participate in NMBLL in the past. Participants must be between the ages of 4 to 18 (or 22 if enrolled in high school).
This program will occur over seven Sundays in the fall of 2015. We will be focusing on skills, drills, and teaching the basics of the game of baseball. Also, we will have informal game play in order to allow players to experience the thrill of participating in a team sport. The dates are still being confirmed but we hope to start on September 27th The sessions will typically be held at around 11am at Pelican Park in Sunny Isles or Ives Estates near Krop high school.
Every child will be assigned a “buddy”, typically an 11-17 year old current or former member of NMBLL who loves baseball and wants to help others learn to love the game as well. While we wish to welcome all children with special needs, due to the fact that the buddies will also be children, we ask parents to use their discretion as to whether their child can attend and take direction to participate. Our goal is to accommodate every child if possible. We also ask that an adult for each child attend every session.
If you are interested in having your child participate as a player or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at NMBbaseballbuddies@gmail.com. No child will be turned away due to the inability to pay.
We would love to have as many players as possible so please spread the word about our program. We can’t wait to see you on the field!
