Challenger League

Challenger Baseball League is a program for physically and mentally disabled children between the ages of 5 - 18 that provides the full benefits of Little League baseball participation in an athletic environment structured to their abilities. The goal is to establish strong bonds of friendship and understanding between our Buddies and Challenger children in an atmosphere of sharing and caring. Volunteer Buddies are family members or local youths and adults from the surrounding community. In Challenger Division games, buddies help their partners by acting as guides for the children, pushing wheelchair bound children around the base paths, or acting as an encouraging friend. We are looking for players and buddies to participate in this exciting program!
