The Miracle League Buddies are volunteers ranging in age from elementary school to senior citizens. These include family members and local youth and civic groups. Though we call them “Buddies, ” many people refer to the volunteers as “Angels in the Outfield.”
The following are the goals for Miracle League Buddies:
- To protect the Miracle League Player at all times.
- When hard hitters are up to bat, buddies are to step in front of the Miracle League player for protection.
- Always allow the Miracle League Player as much freedom as possible to play his/her own game.
- Assist Miracle League Player according to their needs.
- Be of good spirit with enthusiasm, love, good altitude and concern in motivating the players and their families.
- Become their friend. Get to know the players and their families.
- Arrive at the field 30 min prior to game time.
- Be properly dressed and clean dressed in a Buddies shirt.
- Demonstrate high morals and integrity on and of the field.
