The Wilson County Youth Athletic Association’s Batter-Up Buddy Ball Program kicks off its 13th season on Saturday, May 5, at the New Hope Sports Commission Field No. 2.

Players are asked to be at the site at 9:45 a.m. and practices will begin at 10:00 a.m.

Batter-Up Buddy Ball is played each spring and fall. The program is designed for mentally and physically challenged kids ages 4-21, approximately. We give these young players the chance to play the great game of baseball and there is absolutely no cost for participating.

Volunteers or groups are needed to serve as “Buddies” for these special players.
