The Grove City Buddy Ball League is recruiting volunteers for the 2017 season. Visit the Grove City Dream Field website for information.

Youth games are played Saturday mornings at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and noon. New is 2017 is the adult league, games are played Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m. at the Grove City Mirolo Dream Field at Mount Carmel Stadium, 3400 Ventura Blvd.

The Board meets monthly on the first and third Wednesday at 6 p.m. in City Hall. Volunteers are encouraged to attend.

This league will offer children an opportunity to do something that was not possible before, to participate in an organized sport. What makes this program unique is each player has a “buddy” that helps hit, throw and move around the bases. All buddies are community volunteers. In some cases the buddy will push the player in a wheelchair, help a player use a walker or just offer support.

Playing baseball is only a dream for many children, but for those facing physical or mental challenges that dream will soon be fulfilled. The barriers of playing on a conventional grass baseball field are eliminated at the Grove City Mirolo Dream Field at Mount Carmel Stadium!

Interested in helping with the Grove City Buddy Ball League? They need volunteer committee members, coaches and of course, buddies!
