Hatboro Wiffle Ball Classic Swinging for a Miracle

Ben Buber

Competitors in this year’s Hatboro Wiffle Ball Classic will be swinging for a miracle Sept. 4, as all proceeds from the annual community tourney are being dedicated to help bolster the recovery of 3-year-old Ben Buber, recently diagnosed with a brain tumor.

The son of Stan and Jessica Buber has endured an initial surgery to relieve pressure on his brain and his first dose of 10 weeks of chemotherapy last week.

And with the Hatboro Wiffle Ball Classic still months away, friends and family are already rallying to meet the family’s needs through the Prayers for Ben fund, an online crowdfunding campaign seeking $10,000 to defray the family’s mounting medical costs and help make up for lost wages.

The classic, a single-elimination bracketed tournament that guarantees teams at least four games during the day, is slated for an 11 AM start at the Hatboro Little League Field, according to a Hatboro-Horsham Patch report by Justin Heinze.

Prizes will also benefit the tourney participants, with awards for Best Team Name, Fun Stars, and Best Uniforms.
