Look Around Lubbock: Lubbock Challenger Little League
The Lubbock Challenger Little League is a program for developmentally 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. Challenger teams are set up according to abilities and games can be played as tee ball, coach pitch, player pitch, or a combination. Each player gets a chance to bat and there is no score, it's all for fun. "Buddies" assist Challenger players on the field and encourage players to bat and make plays. Little League's Challenger Division was founded in 1989 and includes over 22,000 players nationally.
