KEEP CHALLENGER BASEBALL IN BOND COUNTY

Bond County Challenger Baseball had an awesome first year and efforts are being made to keep the program in Bond County.  Challenger Baseball allows youngsters and adults with developmental disabilities to play baseball with the help of a buddy.  The fundamental goal of the game is for everyone to play.  Every player bats each inning and every player plays the field.  Strikes and outs are not counted, everybody scores and everybody wins.  Teams are supported by coaches and a buddy system.  Buddies assist players when needed both at bat and in the field, push wheelchairs around the bases, help retrieve balls, and be a friend to players.  If you want to play challenger baseball or participate in the buddy program, call Brian or Loretta at 664-9357.
