• Brownsburg program allows children with disabilities to enjoy America’s pastime

    May 11, 2012 No comments

    With baseball season in full swing many children take to the diamond’s to enjoy America’s pastime. Now, Brownsburg is offering a program for children with disabilities so that they can enjoy the game as well.

    It’s called Challenger Baseball and it is open to students with disabilities ranging from 5 to 18 years of age. The game is played using a buddy system where a non-disabled peer will team up with a buddy to help them learn the game and keep them safe on the field. They practice a little before each game and then get to learn to field, throw and hit the ball. And of course the best part is running the bases.

    The teams will play each Saturday in May and June at 10 AM and also on one special Friday night for Little League night at Arbuckle Acres park in Brownsburg on June 8. Games last approximately one hour.

    Most games will be played at the East Middle School softball field. On May 12, the teams will play at the Brownsburg High School softball fields and on June 8 they will play at Arbuckle Acres park in Brownsburg.
