Welcome to Challenger

Challenger

The Challenger League is a special part of the East Meadow Baseball/Softball Association.  It is a league that provides a baseball environment to children with special needs.  The Challenger program affords these children the opportunity to play ball and experience exciting, friendly and fun competition.  This league is run entirely by volunteers and always welcomes community participation.  Many East Meadow players from Baseball and Softball come down on games days to assist the Challenger players and join in the fun.  We hold our monthly meeting on the 1st Wednesday of each month from 7:30 – 9:30 pm.

 

Thanks to Coach Chris and his Kellenberg Varsity baseball team for drills and a clinic with our team on opening day 2017!
