Buddy Baseball: Camaraderie, Acceptance, Fun
Buddy Baseball is a non-competitive recreational league serving the Tampa Bay community for boys and girls ages 8 to 22 with special needs. Each player is paired with a buddy to assist the player as needed on the field and in the dugout. The league fosters friendships and breaks down barriers giving special needs children the opportunity to play an organized sport. Not only do the players experience the thrill of participating in a baseball game, they also experience team play and camaraderie.
Buddy Baseball is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Build a Field
Help us build two synthetic rubber fields that are wheelchair accessible and safer to play on for all players. The State of Florida has already awarded $250,000 towards the project. Invest in the league’s future during our capital campaign.
