What is Challenger Baseball? 

Challenger Baseball is an adaptive baseball program specifically designed to empower children, youth and adults living with physical and/or cognitive disabilities.  The program is designed to teach its athletes the core life skills inherent to baseball, including teamwork, communication, determination, resiliency, inclusion, support and courage.  Challenger Baseball ensures every athlete has the opportunity to play in a fun and safe environment where they learn to become more independent, build confidence and self-esteem, improve their communication skills and set and achieve their own personal goals.

Who can play Challenger Baseball?

To be eligible to participate in Challenger Baseball, participants must have a physical disability, intellectual disability, cognitive delay or developmental disability.

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