An opportunity for all Children

Challenger Baseball provides an opportunity for children with cognitive or physical disabilities to participate in the game of baseball. We utilize a buddy system to assist players on the field if needed, and players are treated equally to players in our conventional baseball programs.

Every player is fitted for uniform, and games are played on local baseball diamonds. We do not keep score, and they will have access to all league equipment.

Challenger sessions run from the beginning of May until the end of June.  All sessions are weather dependent. 

2024 session are on Wednesdays 4:30-5:30 at the GPMBA baseball diamonds in Evergreen park.

Challenger Objectives
