Tom Jones Challenger League baseball will begin its 16th season next Spring. Starting with a dozen players, the league has now grown to more than 100 players and more than 100 buddies and volunteer helpers. Challenger League baseball gives youngsters with disabilities the chance to play the game of baseball. For many, this was a game only their siblings or friends took part in until Challenger offered the opportunity to compete. Challenger League is sponsored by Champaign-Urbana Special Recreation. Games are played on Tuesdays and Saturdays at AMBUCS Park in Urbana during the months of May and June. Ages of our players are 6 to 17. Our motto: Everyone is a winner in Challenger League Baseball.
