RBC IS EXCITED TO BRING BACK ITS BUDDY BALL PROGRAM FOR SPRING 2022. 

 

Spring Buddy Ball Division

 

Where Everyone is a Star!

 

The Buddy Ball Division is a program for special needs children who want to enjoy the full benefits of playing baseball in an athletic environment structured to their abilities.

The Buddy Ball Division was originally developed to provide boys and girls with special needs the opportunity to experience the emotional development and the fun of playing baseball.  Today, more than 30,000 players participate nationwide in a Buddy Ball type of league.  This program enables children the opportunity to participate in a structured athletic program regardless of their ability.

 

ELIGIBILITY

The Buddy Ball Division is a baseball program for boys and girls ages 5 through 21, with special needs. The most fundamental goal of the Buddy Ball Division is to give everyone a chance to play regardless of ability.  Full details about the league and the registration process are in the 2022 Buddy Ball Division Information Guide which will be available at the Ridge Baseball website, www.ridgebaseballclub.com.
