Registration is now open for Buddy Ball with Christ the King Athletic Academy. The Bambino Buddy Ball Division allows athletes with unique abilities to enjoy the game on the same level that is experienced by other participants. Bambino Buddy Ball is for boys, girls and young adults, aged 5–20 (and sometimes older), with mental and/or physical disabilities that have the desire to play organized, non-competitive baseball or softball. Practices will begin on January 29, with the season opener scheduled for March 2. Registration fees are $60.
This division makes allowance for a “Buddy” to help the players swing a bat, round the bases, catch a ball, and enjoy all other aspects of the game. There are no restrictions to the age of the buddy. The league is also seeking individuals who are intertested in being a Buddy. The season lasts six Saturdays. It is preferred for buddies to be available as many as possible for consistent pairings if possible, but they will gladly accept any help. Buddies can earn volunteer hours.
