“But Buddy Baseball is nothing without the buddies, and we know that they are the ones that really make it possible to have this great program,” Deanna Tharpe, volunteer said.
Buddies are volunteers 12 years or older who help their player by acting as guides for blind children, by pushing wheelchair-bound children around the bases, or by helping them bat or field the ball.
