Bambino Buddy Ball
We do things a bit differently, and that's the way we like it!
What is Bambino Buddy Ball?
Babe Ruth League, Inc. believes that every child should be provided the opportunity to participate in the game of baseball and softball. BRL, Inc. has always encouraged member leagues to accept all players regardless of their physical or mental ability.
The Bambino Buddy Ball program was established for organizations who wish to charter a league that encompasses players ages 5-20 who are either physically and/or mentally challenged. This division makes allowance for a "buddy" to help the player swing a bat, round the bases, catch a ball, etc. Bambino Buddy Ball is designed so that everyone has the opportunity to have fun and participate in a team sport.
Our Bambino Buddy Ball program
CYBSA does not charge/collect registration fees for Buddy Ball, the program is free to all special needs players ages 5-19. The CYBSA Bambino Buddy Ball program is funded entirely through charitable contributions and allows our challenged or special needs athletes to develop confidence and positive self-esteem. The program allows the players to be part of organized sports and aids in both physical fitness and social skills. CYBSA "buddies" are volunteer teams and/or players from our other Babe Ruth and Cal Ripken baseball and softball divisions. Buddies and B.B.B players have the opportunity to make new and lasting friendships while playing the great game of baseball.
