Challengers League


The Challenger division of Andover Little League, established in 2001, enables special needs children to play organized baseball.  The program is open to boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 18, with physical and/or emotional disabilities. The children are able to participate regardless of their abilities, and receive on-field support in all aspects of the game - including batting, fielding, running, and just having fun playing baseball!  The program utilizes a "buddy system" at the games to assist the Challenger players.  These buddies are players from the Major League division of Andover Little League.  With the help of the buddies, the children play baseball in a non-stressful, supportive environment.  To this end, all Challenger players are on the field at the same time, do not make outs, and are able to bat (with or without assistance) until they hit the ball.  The majority of the Challengers Division games are played on Saturday mornings.
