Challenger Baseball is a league designed for youth 5 to 18 years of age with cognitive or physical disabilities to enjoy the thrill of playing baseball, being part of a team and developing their physical and social skills.

Looking for Volunteers!

  • Volunteers are assigned (one-on-one, where possible) to each participant
  • Assist the Challenger players with their involvement in the game
  • Assist players in how to hold the bat and swing, pushing wheelchairs around the base path, and providing protection from a batted ball.

These are just a few of the ways the volunteers offer a better experience for the participants in Challenger Baseball.
