Wendell Fields pitched his idea to re-establishing the B-Buzz Little League Baseball at Accelerate 2016. The league provided a family atmosphere, safe place and lasting friendships and became a lifeline for many African-American males in the 1960s and 70s.
After Accelerate, Wendell began registering students to play in the League’s opening day on May 28, 2016, and launched a new website. The championship game, awards and old-timer’s softball game were held for July 23, 2016. By fall 2016 the league was in the process of applying for 501(c)(3) certification … and looking ahead to summer 2017!
