2018 Batter-Up Buddy Ball Spring Season
The WCYAA's Batter-Up Buddy Ball Program kicks off its 13th Season on Saturday, May 5, at the New Hope Sports Commission Field #2. Players are asked to be at the site at 9:45am.
Practices will start at 10:00am.
Batter-Up Buddy Ball is played each spring and fall. The program is designed for mentally and physically challenged
kids ages 4-21 (yes we fudge sometimes on those ages). We give these young players the chance to play the great game of baseball thru our program. There is absolutely no costs for participating.
Volunteers or groups are needed to serve as "Buddies" for our special players.
For more information on the W.C.Y.A.A.'s Batter-Up Buddy Ball Program, call Mickey Davis at 252-230-2467 or email
