The Grove City Buddy Ball League is recruiting volunteers for the 2020 season. Visit the Grove City Dream Field website for information.
Playing baseball is only a dream for many children, but for those facing physical or mental challenges that dream is fulfilled. The barriers of playing on a conventional grass baseball field are eliminated at the Grove City Mirolo Dream Field at Mount Carmel Stadium!
Youth games are played Saturday mornings at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and noon. The adult league games are played Tuesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. at the Grove City Mirolo Dream Field at Mount Carmel Stadium, 3400 Ventura Blvd.
The league offers children and adults with challenges an opportunity to do something not possible before, to participate in organized baseball. What makes this program unique is each player has a “buddy” who helps players hit, throw and move around the bases. All buddies are community volunteers. When necessary the buddy will push the player in a wheelchair, help a player use a walker or just offer support.
Interested in helping with the Grove City Buddy Ball League? Volunteer committee members, coaches and of course, buddies are needed.
