Challenger Baseball League

challenger baseball

The Challenger Division was established to enable boys and girls with physical and Intellectual disabilities, ages 5-18.  We want all kids with unique abilities to enjoy the game of baseball.  Today, more than 30,000 children participate in more than 900 Challenger Divisions worldwide.

Teams are set up according to unique abilities, rather than age/gender, and can include as many as 10-12 players. Challenger games can be played based on the child abilities included and not limited to tee ball games, coach pitch, player pitch, or a combination of the three.

In a Challenger game, each player gets a chance to bat. The side is retired when the offense has batted through the roster, or when a pre-determined number of runs have been scored, or when three outs are recorded. No score will be kept during Challenger games. The Challenger players will wear uniforms, and safety equipment.

One of the benefits of having a Challenger Division is that it encourages the use of "buddies" for the Challenger players. The buddies assist the Challenger players on the field, but whenever possible, encourage the players to bat and make plays themselves. However, the buddy is always nearby to help when needed.

Challenger games will be played on Thursday evenings at the Texas Bank Sports Complex beginning at 6:30pm. Depending on the number of teams each team will play 4-6 games starting April 13, 2017.
