According to the Sun Journal, Auburn has a new baseball team for children with disabilities. Buddy Ball is the newest youth baseball team to join Auburn Suburban Little League Baseball and Softball teams.

Buddy Ball was started as a way to offer sports to children with disabilities. Not only is Buddy Ball is played in pairs. Each player is assigned a buddy that assists them in hitting, running bases, and even offers moral support.

Buddy Ball consists of 22 players this season, between the ages of 3 and 18, from multiple towns in Maine. Players don't need to live in Auburn to be a part of the Buddy Ball team; it is open to anyone.

With a year much bigger than anticipated, Auburn Suburban Little League will bring back Buddy Ball next year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Oh, and they could always use more buddies next season too! If you know someone who would love to be a part of this amazing opportunity, let them know.
