New for 2015 - TheDistrict 3 Challenger League to play Finals at World Series
(From Coastal Point)
This year, the World Series in Delaware welcomes the new Challenger League, for players who face different types of physical or mental challenges.
“Kids … anywhere from 5 to 18 years old can play together,” explained Littleton. “There’s no criteria.”
That league is being spearheaded by Kevin and Meghan Brown, who bring experience with the program.
“They’re very familiar with it,” said Littleton. “They actually helped coach this division back in Maryland.”
Littleton said he hopes for enough players to field at least two teams for the Challenger League’s inaugural year at Lower Sussex. They will travel around to various ball parks throughout the area during the season. They even got support for allowing the teams to play at the Little League World Series this July.
“Hopefully, we’ll get more [teams],” he said. “The plan is, once we get teams formed, we’re gonna plan on playing at our place; then we’ll play at Georgetown. The district World Series committee has already committed to two games that they can play during the World Series.”
The Challenger Final is scheduled for Wednesday, August 5th at 5:30 PM.
