Looking for Buddies

Make a difference! Valpo Parks is looking for “Buddies” to help with our Challenger Baseball League. This league is for individuals with physical and intellectual challenges. Buddies are used to assist the players in the areas of batting, fielding and base running when necessary.

No prior experience is necessary and there will be a buddy meeting prior to the season starting. Buddies are needed for this program at a 1:1 ratio and should be able to commit to attending each session
