Baseball for all.

On May 11-13, 2007 between 100 and 150 teams are expected to attend the 2nd Annual Challenger Little League Baseball World Jamboree at the Azalea Little League Complex in Norfolk, Virginia. This very special event enables boys and girls ages 5 to 18 with physical and mental disabilities to enjoy the game of baseball along with the millions of other children who participate in the sport worldwide. The Jamboree gives kids the opportunity to socialize in a positive atmosphere and play baseball rather than watch from the stands as others play. This innovative event makes it possible for every child to participate in a structured and athletic program, regardless of their disability. The league motto says it best: "Every Kid Deserves To Play."

The jamboree will include games, tours, picnics, and other special events. All the details about the Jamboree, including information on how your league can take part, can be found at http://www.littleleague.org/divisions/challenger.asp.
