Lubbock Challenger Little League is a very unique baseball program designed exclusively for children with disabilities. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing opportunities for challenged children — either physically or mentally — across the South Plains to play baseball with their friends, loved ones and caring community members.
Each season, players receive team caps and jerseys representing actual Major League Baseball teams. The season typically begins in April and ends near the end of June. All games are played on a special field in McAlister Park located at Milwaukee Avenue and the Marsh Sharp Freeway. The field features a synthetic infield with all lines and bases painted on to accommodate players who require wheelchairs, walkers or crutches. Registration for each season is usually held in February; however, we have the ability to place late registrations on teams throughout the season.
Lubbock Challenger Little League is a fun league that is open to all children age 5 through 18 (or still enrolled in school), regardless of their physical or mental challenges. No score is kept and batters earns a home run with each at bat. All games are overseen by coaches, league officials and umpires. Cost is only $10 per season, but no child is turned away. We have scholarships available to cover the fee for those who are unable to pay.
