Welcome to Challengers baseball!
The Challenger Division was established to provide a separate division of Little League to enable boys, girls, men and women with physical and mental challenges to enjoy the game of baseball along with the millions of other children who participate in this sport worldwide. There are two divisions as of 2015. Ages 4-18, or age 19-22 if still enrolled in high school can partake in the Challenger division. Ages 15 and over can partake in the Senior Challenger division. Today more than 30,000 people participate in more than 900 Challenger Divisions worldwide.
Teams are set up according to abilities, rather than age, and can include as many as 15-20 players. Challenger games can be played as t-ball games, coach pitch, player pitch, or a combination of the three.
In a Challenger game, each player gets a chance at 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. Little League recommends that no score be kept during Challenger games. The Challenger players wear the same uniforms, shoulder patches and safety equipment as other Little League players.
