Each summer during Championship Saturday of the Little League Baseball® World Series, two local Little League Challenger Division® programs are given the unique opportunity to play in a once-in-a-lifetime game on Volunteer Stadium in the Little League Challenger Division Exhibition Game. Featured in this year’s game will be Massachusetts District 12 Challenger Little League and Peterborough (Ontario) Challenger Baseball League.

“One of the unique aspects of the Little League Baseball World Series is the opportunity for players from around the world to interact with each other and experience each other’s culture both on and off the field,” said Stephen D. Keener, Little League President and CEO. “Already one of the most uplifting and inspiring aspects of our event, we are delighted to welcome these two teams from Massachusetts and Ontario to enjoy those experiences and create lifelong memories in this year’s Challenger Division Exhibition Game.”

The 2019 Little League Challenger Division Exhibition Game will take place on Saturday, August 24, at 10:30 a.m. and showcase the opportunities that the Little League Challenger Division provides to more than 30,000 children with physical and intellectual challenges at more than 900 leagues worldwide.

The Little League Challenger Division Exhibition Game has been a part of the Little League Baseball World Series schedule since 2001. Little League® International supports the participating leagues with a $15,000 grant to help offset the costs for the teams to participate in the Exhibition Game.

While the grant will help, the Challengers players will need need additional funding for their once in a lifetime trip. Please see attached flyer for upcoming fundraiser. Whether you can attend the fundraiser, please consider a donation.
