Welcome to the Home of
The Medford Invitational Tournament
GAME ON RAIN or SHINE
On behalf of the Medford Invitational Family, I want to invite you to take part in our signature event, the Twelfth Annual Challenger Day. For more than a decade, this unique celebration of sports continues to grow. Our team has been working hard all year to achieve a goal that this year's event is better then the last. having seen the plans for this year, I am confident we are on target to achieve that goal.
The City of Malden will be rolling out the red carpet for our amazing Challenger Athletes, our local government leaders have teamed up with the generous support of the business community to make sure we are ready to honor and celebrate the all-stars. the Challenger All-stars inspire all of us as they demonstrate the love they have for life and the energy that bring to the ball field despite the disabilities.
On Sunday August 12th, all the hard work and preparation come together in one of the greatest baseball games you will ever see as 75 superstars will take the field and play one inning of baseball.
I ask that you consider joining us that Sunday to join us in making lifetime memories for the children and for you. In exchange for this opportunity, we ask that you come to the park ready to work hard. If you choose to be a volunteer we expect that all your focus is on the Challenger Athletes. You may even sweat a little, but I promise you that at the end of the day, you will be thanking us for the chance to be a part of this celebration.
The pay is good too! Everyone who participates will received a very generous amount of beautiful smiles!
Thank-you for your consideration and we hope to see you on August 12th.

NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY RULE
The use of flash photography during a game is strictly prohibited. You are welcome to take as many photos as you wish, but in the interest of safety, electronic flash may impare the vision of a player while a ball is in flight.
Violators of this policy will have their cameras taken from them. The camera will then be placed at home plate where a member of the MIT staff will rip the film or memory card from it and proceed to smash the camera into many tiny pieces.
We thank-you for your cooperation.
