Challenger Baseball provides children with disabilities the opportunity to play organized baseball in a non-competitive environment. It is a tremendous opportunity for these children, and for families like mine, who never dreamed their child would play in a baseball league. For the third year in a row, the Blue Jays Baseball Academy has partnered with Challenger Baseball to host six Challenger Baseball clinics across Canada, including one right here in St. John's.
This week, local participants of Challenger Baseball were treated to an afternoon of fun at St. Pat's Ballpark. Blue Jays Alumni in attendance were Duane Ward, Lloyd Moseby, Jesse Barfield and Brian McRae.
We had such an awesome time.. I will let the photos speak for themselves!
Brennen's teachers came to cheer him on!
Parents (and grandparents) of children with special needs want what all parents want: to give their children chances to learn, to try new things, to discover their interests and test their wings. We want our children to live happy and active lives, full of meaningful experiences. We want to immerse them in life's adventures. Thank you, Challenger Baseball, for helping to expand the world of opportunities for individuals with disabilities. Thank you for supporting our children and creating an environment that both challenges and celebrates them!
