The goal of the Challenger Division is to give everyone a chance to play baseball and have a rewarding experience, regardless of limitations.
The Challenger program also helps to establish strong bonds of friendship and understanding between Little Leaguers from other programs and Challenger children in an atmosphere of sharing and caring. In Challenger games, middle school and high school aged volunteers, or Challenger Buddies, help the players by acting as team guides for children who may not be able to play baseball on their own. This interaction has proven to be a positive experience for all the children involved as Challenger players enjoy the thrill of participation, and their "buddies" experience first hand the challenges these children face in their daily lives.
