The Buddy Baseball flag raising at City Hall on Feb. 25

Buddy Baseball is back!

Buddy Baseball registration is underway. The free program for developmentally and physically challenged youth is offered by the Bayonne Division of Recreation and open to residents ages 4 to 21.

“Buddies” assist players. This may include helping a player bat or field the ball, pushing a player in a wheelchair around the bases, or motivating the players. More than the skills of baseball are learned through the program.

Games will take place in May and June at the 11th Street Oval. Every player will receive a uniform, including jersey, pants, socks, and hat.

Register at the Division of Recreation in City Hall Room #13, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

For more information, and to become a buddy, call Pete Amadeo at the Division of Recreation at 201-858-6129 or email BAYONNEREC@AOL.COM.
