Be Part of Something Special

We depend on the kindness of volunteers who generously contribute their time to ensure that our special athletes can savor the thrill of hitting a ball, crossing home plate, and embracing the camaraderie of being on a team. In our community, both players and volunteers forge lasting friendships, foster a sense of belonging, and most importantly, have an absolute blast! We invite you to join us for an incredibly fulfilling and joyful experience.

VolunCHEER

Our players light up with joy when they have a full crowd cheering them on as they round third and head for home! You can support our players by just showing up and being there to celebrate their achievements. Make signs, sit in the stands, clap for our players, and let them know that you’re proud of them.

“He loves the joy that comes from everyone on and off the field. The buddies are wonderful with our son and the coach is super encouraging and positive.”
