Miracle League Buddies


The YMCA Miracle League at the YMCA of Greater Houston is possible in large part thanks to our volunteers known as "buddies." Buddies support the Miracle League players on and off the field during the game and assist them with batting, running the bases, fielding the ball and in general making sure each child has a great time playing baseball!

All buddies must be 12 years or older, submit a volunteer application and waiver, complete the online YOTS child abuse training (for those 17 and older) and attend a buddy training. All volunteers over the age of 17 will be subject to a background check.
