We Need Buddies!

What is a Buddy? Buddies make playing possible!

Interested in becoming a buddy? 

Please watch this short video that shows what they do during a game.

Games are played at 6pm or 7pm on

Monday and Tuesday nights

Our players can not play the game of baseball without the help of volunteer buddies. 

To be a buddy you are only committing to one night during the season for 2 hours.

Buddy groups can be any sport ball teams from middle school, high school, college or club, church groups, businesses or community organizations.

A buddy group for one team will be 10-12 people or if you have a group big enough to cover both teams that would be about 20-24 people.

Buddy groups are a great way for your organization to build relationships with your local community - and we give our Buddy sponsors much love on social media to thank them for their participation!
