The Camp Hill Challenger Division of Little League baseball is currently accepting registrations. The program is open to children and young adults with physical and/or mental disabilities who are ages 5 to 21 and reside in Dauphin, Cumberland, York, and Perry counties.
Teams can include as many as 15 players and are made up of players of varying skill levels. There is no skill requirement to play. Challenger games may 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 at bat each inning, and the side is retired when the offense has batted through the roster. Camp Hill Challenger does not keep score and views its games as noncompetitive. The Challenger players wear the same uniforms and use the same safety equipment as other Little League players. The Challenger Division encourages the use of buddies, who assist the Challenger players on the field but encourage the players to bat and make plays themselves whenever possible. Games are typically played on Sunday afternoons at the Camp Hill Little League baseball complexes.
To register, readers may visit http://camphillbaseball.weebly.com/. More information is available by contacting Tony Fowler, Challenger commissioner, at 717-731-9435 or Keystonehear@msn.com.
