Challengers Baseball

Challenger Baseball division of Little League, for boys and girls 4-18 (and up to 22 if still enrolled in school), is a program for mentally and physically challenged youth, helping them to enjoy the full benefits of Little League participation in an athletic environment structured to their abilities.

More than the skills of baseball learned through the experience, the value of the Little League Challenger Division is found in the proven therapeutic and socialization benefits of participating in sports, the strengthening of participants’ self-esteem, the opportunities to mainstream into other divisions of play, and the disciplines of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play, which are hallmarks of the Little League program.

This video from a Massachusetts Little League's Challenger program gives a great overview of the division:

Is there any assistance to help with registration fees?
