Baseball Buddies


To make a difference in the lives of special needs children giving them hope and love through baseball, Founders Lisa and John Manning's son, Lucas was born with Cerebral Palsy and always sat on the sidelines watching his brother and sister play many sports. After contemplating how they could incorporate and involve Lucas and other special needs children in sports, their other son, Conrad came up with the idea of Baseball Buddies. Designed for physically and emotionally, challenged children under the age of 18 years old, kids like Lucas play a regular baseball game with innings, chances to bat and to play the field. The big difference is that each player has a "buddy" that assists them throughout the game, helping them to swing, catch, throw and run/ride the bases.if they are in a wheelchair. Everyone plays every position, everyone bats and best of all, everyone wins!
