More Information About the Great River Challenge
The Challenger Leagues of the Illinois and Iowa Quad Cities will be playing in the fifth
GREAT RIVER CHALLENGE. The game will have the two leagues playing together at the
scenic Modern Woodmen Park thanks to the generosity of the River Bandits
Organization and the hard work of many people from both leagues.
The Challenger Little League enable mentally and physically challenged children a
chance to play organized baseball. The Challenger Leagues have the participants
divided into three different levels to allow for safe and fun baseball game. The
Challenger Leagues rely on volunteers to coach and manage the teams and most of
them are parents of these special needs children. The Challenger Leagues also have
volunteers who act as “buddies” and help the Challenger players on the field and at bat.
The GREAT RIVER CHALLENGE will consist of 5 games (two minor league games, one
intermediate league game, and two major league game) beginning at 1:00 PM and each
game will last about one hour. There will be concessions for sale to the spectators of
these GREAT athletes.
