The Baseball players joyfully climbed the bleachers to meet the buddies in attendance at the fourth annual “Best Buddies Day at the Ball Field” event hosted this past Saturday. Smiles were in abundance as the BU team autographed a group photo and chatted before the one 1 p.m. start. The buddies were also presented with V.I.P passes and a gift bag filled with refreshments. The cold wind didn’t seem to dampen the Buddies spirits as they cheered our Huskies on in an exciting game against Kutztown.
Best Buddies is a worldwide organization that helps promote one on one relationships with people who have IDD’s (intellectual and developmental disabilities). The Bloomsburg Best Buddies chapter partnered with Bloomsburg PRSSA (Public Relations Student Society of America) and the Huskies baseball team to put on the event.
