Challenger Baseball is a program that provides an opportunity for children with cognitive or physical disabilities to enjoy the full benefits of participation in baseball at a level structured to their abilities.

Playing in a Challenger division gives players and their families the opportunity to:

  • enjoy the thrill of playing baseball
  • be part of a team
  • develop physical and social skills
  • build self esteem
  • get exercise while having fun
  • make new friends
  • meet other children and families in their communities

Basic concepts of Challenger Baseball:

  1. Children with cognitive or physical disabilities, to participate “in a league … on a team … in a uniform”
  2. Children age 4-18 years old, participate in a fun and safe environment, that caters to their very special needs
  3. Able-bodied “Buddies” participate with each player, to assistant and provide a safer, more enjoyable experience
  4. Everyone bats each inning … no balls and strikes … no outs …everyone is safe at each base
  5. Tee ball or coach pitch
  6. Games are an hour, to an hour and a quarter maximum

The program is offered at no cost to participants!  Registration is now open!
