3N2 recently took part in sponsoring the inaugural BIG 26 Classic which pitted top high school baseball prospects in Maryland against their counterparts from Pennsylvania. The players are comprised of high school sophomores and juniors who have been selected through try-outs by college coaches and MLB scouts. These are arguably some of the top young talents in Pennsylvania and Maryland. One of the draws for 3N2 was the Buddy Program which matches the high school athletes with special needs kids “buddies”. The players and buddies participate in a Challenger Game and take part in various activities that allow for bonding between the buddies and the players.
Host families housed each athlete and took care of all transportation, lodging, meals and laundry. Without the generosity of these host families the Big 26 Classic would not have been possible.
I would like to hear from anyone whether you were a volunteer, coach, player, buddy or parent on your perspective of the BIG 26 Classic. How successful was the Classic in meeting its goals and how did 3N2 serve you this year?
