Buddy Ball in Iowa makes for a Heart Warming experience

Buddy Ball

Out in Iowa, Norman "Butch" Ryan started a softball game 6 years ago that gives everyone a chance to feel important. Buddy Ball. It's a game that features special Olympic athletes, and in the game there are no outs, every player gets a home run, and a buddy helps not only hit the ball, but also run the bases. Butch says its a heart warming experience like no other.

"I think it means quite a bit. You'll see how, when they start playing, they get excited and everything, and it just gives them a time to shine in their life." -Butch

"It means a lot to me, being with friends, being with a whole lot of friends." - Jody
