Every Hand Helps
You can give individuals with disabilities the gift of friendship and baseball by volunteering as a Buddy. Working one-on-one with our players will warm your heart and spread joy all around! Our Buddy system pairs each player, with a volunteer helper that remains with them the entire season.
Miracle League North Bay Buddies are assigned a player for each game. The buddy is there to protect the player from balls, assist the player in batting and running the bases (if needed), and to be a friend on and off the field. Buddies are responsible for their individual player from the time of introduction until the player is back in the care of their parent/guardian. This means that no matter where their player goes the buddy must go. Buddies need to be energetic, committed and enthusiastic for each game. We ask that all buddy-members be at least 12 years old.
When a hard hitter is up at bat, buddies are to step in front of the Miracle League North Bay’s player for protection. Always allow the Miracle League North bay player as much freedom as possible to play his/her game and position. Assist the Miracle League North Bay player according to their needs. Arrive at the field 15 minutes prior to game time. Notify the Miracle League North Bay buddy coordinator prior to game time if they will not be able to attend the game.
