Buddy Baseball Newsletter
September 2017
Hello Buddy Baseball Fans, 

Our 17th season is almost here!  A big welcome to the many new players, buddies and coaches this season!
 
We will start the season off with our Meet and Greet luncheon on Saturday, September 23rd at the Lightfoot Center in Temple Terrace - details below. For those of you new to Buddy Baseball, the Meet and Greet is a chance for the players, buddies, coaches and parents to get to know each other before the season starts.  We will be handing out team uniforms at the event.
 
Opening day will be September 30th. The Tampa Breakfast Sertoma Club will be grilling hamburgers and hot dogs for us from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm.  If you have the late game that day, come early for lunch.
 
We hope that everybody came out of Hurricane Irma okay.
 
I'll see you all at the Meet and Greet!
