Encompass is seeking baseball buddies, children ages 10 to 18 to be paired up with athletes in Challenger Baseball, which the organization is co-sponsoring.

Snoqualmie Valley Little League’s Challenger Baseball is an adaptive program for boys and girls with physical and cognitive delays. Each player plays the game at his or her level and is paired with a peer buddy to assist them as needed.

Challenger Baseball is free for buddies.
