The job of a Buddy is simple. They are matched up one-on-one with a player to assist them as needed; giving them the opportunity to play the game as much as possible, give them encouragement, become a friend, and keep them safe. This usually looks like helping the player bat, run the bases, field a ball, or just playing catch with them. No special needs nor baseball experience is necessary. Games last 2 innings where everyone gets the opportunity to bat, and play in the field. Games are once a week, on Saturdays, and run 40 minutes long. We have two locations; San Dieguito Park in Del Mar, and Bell Middle School in Chula Vista. Buddies can be on a full-time (most games) or part-time basis.

Mission Statement

The Miracle League of San Diego provides children and adults with special needs the opportunity to play baseball in an organized league. Every player is matched with a buddy based on his or her unique needs. Our goal is that everyone walks away saying "I had a great day!".

Description

The Miracle League of San Diego has been providing special needs players, and their families, a safe place to play baseball and find a community since 2007. Our goal is to enrich the lives of those in the special needs community through the game of baseball. Since it's foundation, we have been able to expand our program into two locations in San Diego County; Del Mar and Chula Vista. Our volunteers are what make the Miracle League of San Diego possible.
