MHLL will be hosting a Challenger Division in 2018.
Challenger is an opportunity for children with cognitive or physical disabilities to enjoy the thrill of playing baseball, being part of a team, developing physical and social skill plus all the benefits of participation in baseball at a level structured to their abilities. Games are played in a fun, safe environment where no score is kept.
During Challenger games the players will be assigned a “buddy” to assist them with hitting, running and fielding, as required. MHLL is seeking the participation of our Juniors teams as buddies for this season.
Challenger Dates: TBD
