The Challenger Division was established in 1989 as a separate division of Little League
Baseball to enable boys and girls with physical and mental disabilities, ages 5 and up to
enjoy the game of baseball along with the millions of other children who participate in
this sport worldwide.
Each player gets a chance at bat. The side is retired when the offense has batted through
the roster. Little League recommends that no score be kept during games.
The Moline League was organized in 1992 and followed in the footsteps of the Iowa Quad
Cities and Galesburg area, who have their own leagues. We started with two teams and
played our games on Sundays at various locations in Rock Island and at Stephens Park in
Moline. The program has grown in the past few years and we now have six teams. We still
play our games on Sunday afternoons, but at Riverside Park in Moline. Each child gets to
play the entire game, fielding and batting, in an hour long game to their hearts content.
