Fall Challenger Division
Maricopa Little League is pleased to offer the Challanger Division for the upcoming Fall 2017 season
The Challenger Division was established in 1989 as a separate division of Little League to enable boys and girls with physical and mental challenges, ages 4-18, or up to age 22 if still enrolled in high school, to enjoy the game of baseball along with the millions of other children who participate in this sport worldwide. Today more than 30,000 children participate in more than 900 Challenger Divisions worldwide.
Teams are set up according to abilities, rather than age, and can include as many as 15-20 players. Challenger games can be played as t-ball games, coach pitch, player pitch, or a combination of the three.
In a Challenger game, each player gets a chance at bat. The side is retired when the offense has batted through the roster, or when a pre-determined number of runs have been scored, or when three outs are recorded. Little League recommends that no score be kept during Challenger games. The Challenger players wear the same uniforms, shoulder patches and safety equipment as other Little League players.
Note: Registrations won't be confirmed until we know how many players we have interested
Fall season is a GREAT opportunity to get involved with Maricopa Little League. Little League is 100% volunteer based and we will need help in ALL areas including coaches, team parents, field prep, equipment disbursement, registrations and much more. Please consider sharing your talents and time with the league today. Send an email to email@example.com if you are interested in helping or have general questions.

Tommy Fitzgerald Nov 29, 2000 - August 5, 2013
Tommy Fitzgerald played in Maricopa Little League for several years, and lost his life to sepsis. He had recently moved to Gilbert and slid into second base during a game leaving a scrap on his knee. Shortly after, he went to the doctor and was admitted to the hospital. After a 33 day battle with sepsis Tommy passed away at the age of 12. Our Little League changed our sportsmanship award to the "Tommy Fitzgerald Sportsmanship Award" that year to honor him. The city of Maricopa has offered to build a memorial statue at the park in his honor if we can raise the funds. Please go to 33tommy.com if you can help with any amount. Let's make this happen for one of our own!
