Challenger league helps kids focus on winning at life

Kids hit the baseball diamond in Camp Hill this weekend for some fun.  Sunday was opening day for the Challenger baseball league.

It’s the area’s largest baseball program for children with psychological, mental, or physical disabilities.

Kids between the ages of five and 21 participated.  The league doesn’t keep score and the kids play in a non-competitive environment.

“You can’t help but feel good when you’re out here watching and helping these kids play baseball,” Director Tony Fowler said.  “Again; in a non-competitive environment. There’s lots of sports out there for challenged children, however, there’s always that goal of winning. Here we don’t have a concept of winning or losing. Everybody’s a winner.”

More than 60 kids took to the field playing on four different teams.
