WHAT IS THE CHALLENGER LEAGUE? | This special division removes the barriers that keep children/adults with mental and physical disabilities off the ballfield and lets them experience the joy of playing baseball. But it’s more than playing a game. OYO envisions the Challenger League being a place where new friends are made, self-esteem is built and our players are treated just like other athletes. There are children/adults in our community who have an equal amount of love and determination as any current OYO player, and we want to help them achieve that dream.

WHO? | Any interested ballplayer age 4-18. This division is open to male and females, and there is no age limit.

WHEN DOES THE CHALLENGER LEAGUE BEGIN? | OYO offers the Challenger League each Spring Season, and can accommodate up to 24 players in this program. Registration begins in January and practices will start in mid-arch.
