Challenger Day

challenger-crest2Challenger day is tomorrow, April 3rd 12:30PM at Tahoe Tallac Little League.

A little bit of information about the challenger division:

crestIt was created as a separate division of Little League to enable boys and girls with physical and mental challenges, ages 4-18 to enjoy the game of baseball along with the millions of other children who participate in this sport worldwide. Today, more than 30,000 children 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 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. 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.
