What is Challenger Baseball?

The Challenger division is setup to teach children with physical and/or mental challenger learn the game of baseball.  Players are paired up with a 'buddy' to help them learn the game.  This is a rewarding experience for all of our Challenger players and their buddies.  This is a free program offered by McHenry Baseball.  Buddies are typically volunteers from other teams or from throughout the community and are usually 12 years of age or older.
