Bambino Baseball Start-Up -- Spread the Word

Looking for mentally and physically challenged children who live in Ulster or Orange County to participate in the All-American sport of baseball by being a part of the Bambino Buddy Ball Division of Marlboro’s Babe Ruth League!

The Bambino Buddy Ball Division offers mentally and physically challenged boys and girls, ages 5 through 21, the opportunity to participate in an organized game of baseball. This program helps children enjoy the full benefits of participating in an athletic environment structured to their abilities.

The Bambino Buddy Ball Division employs the use of "buddies". The buddies assist the players on the field and, whenever possible, encourage the players to bat and make plays themselves. A buddy can be any age.

For a Bambino Buddy Ball Division to exist, there must be 30 or more players.

The division will be based out of Marlboro and open to Ulster and Orange County residents. If you know someone who might be interested in this program, please have them contact Heather Troncillito by March 21, 2008 . With enough interest, she will hold an informational meeting about this wonderful program.

Let Them Play Ball!!!
