Sign-ups for Westside Challenger Baseball due by April 21

By on April 9, 2018

Westside Challenger Baseball will enter its eighth season for all area youngsters in Western Monroe County, Orleans County and Genesee County who have physical and/or developmental disabilities and would like to experience baseball that is structured to their needs. Children ages 5 through 18 will participate in a fun and family atmosphere, plus they will even have a buddy to assist them when needed. There is no cost to any family to have their child play Westside Challenger Baseball, due to generous sponsorship from area businesses, service organizations and private donations. Players will receive hat and jersey, trophies at end-of-season family picnic, food and drink after each game and free tickets for players and family to attend a Rochester Red Wings game.

The fundamental goal of Westside Challenger Baseball is to give everyone a chance to play. To realize that goal, Westside Challenger Baseball has two basic rules: every player bats each inning, and every player plays the field. We don’t count strikes and we don’t count outs. Everybody scores and everybody wins. Westside Challenger Baseball participants learn not only the fundamentals of baseball, but also experience pulling together as a team, being cheered on by a crowd, and being encouraged by their peers. All games are played Saturday mornings at Nietopski Field at the Town of Sweden Park at 9:30 a.m. starting June 9. Our players have also been invited to play June 23 at the Challenger Baseball World Series at Frontier Field, the home field for our Rochester Red Wings.

The registration deadline is April 21. Your registration forms can be obtained by contacting Jack Milner, at 637-5027 or email at Your Westside Challenger Baseball organizers are looking forward to an exciting and fun-filled season, one in which all our players have a very positive Baseball experience.
