Spring Buddy Ball Division


Where Everyone is a Star!


The Buddy Ball Division is a program for special needs children who want to enjoy the full benefits of playing baseball in an athletic environment structured to their abilities.

The Buddy Ball Division was originally developed to provide boys and girls with special needs the opportunity to experience the emotional development and the fun of playing baseball.  Today, more than 30,000 players participate nationwide in a Buddy Ball type of league.  This program enables children the opportunity to participate in a structured athletic program regardless of their ability.



The Buddy Ball Division is a baseball program for boys and girls ages 5 through 21, with special needs. The most fundamental goal of the Buddy Ball Division is to give everyone a chance to play regardless of ability.  Full details about the league and the registration process are in the 2019 Buddy Ball Division Information Guide which will be available at the Ridge Baseball website, www.ridgebaseballclub.com. Please read and keep a copy of the Information Guide.


You will need the following items to registration:

1) Completed Registration Form                                                                                      

2) Copy of player’s birth certificate (if not on file with League, if you have registered in a previous year you don’t need to provide another copy of the birth certificate)

3) Credit Card  (or check for the player registration fee made out to Ridge Baseball Club).


The 2019 registration fee will be $25.  The registration fee covers the purchase of baseball shirts, cap, and trophy at the end of the season.


We also need managers, coaches, other volunteers, and sponsors.  All managers, coaches and other volunteers must submit a Buddy Ball Volunteer form.  Please see our website for further information.
