Challenger Division

The Challenger Division of Little League Baseball provides boys and girls who have developmental or physical disabilities the opportunity to enjoy the full benefits and excitement of playing on a baseball team. The program is for children ages 5-18 that live anywhere in Mid-Missouri. There is also an adult Challenger program for 18 and older.

Player Buddies provide on-the-field assistance as needed with batting, moving around the base paths and throwing. All players wear a uniform, but no official score is kept. Games will be played at Daniel Boone Little League (Scott Boulevard & Chapel Hill Road in Columbia).


The spring 2019 season begins April 29. Games for Minors (ages 4-8) and Majors (ages 12-18) are 6 p.m. Mondays. Games for Adult (18+) are 6 p.m. Thursdays.


The registration fee is $20 and includes spring and fall seasons. Fall ball is in September and early October.
