As Opening Day for baseball approaches, Fort Hunt Little League is preparing to offer an opportunity for young aspiring baseball players with disabilities the chance to participate in America’s pastime.
The “Challengers Division,” modeled after a similar program in the West Springfield Little League, is meant for boys and girls ages six to 15 and will be open to any skill level.
Organizer Tony Castrilli said the new division will be offered for free and should have about two to three games in the season, with one to two practices.
“It’s an opportunity for players and their families to get out, enjoy the game of baseball and meet other family in the community that have that interest.”
Other players from Fort Hunt Little League will be on the field with the Challengers as buddies, helping and coaching.
