Who We Are

"Fastest growing league in the world!"

Here at Highland Baseball Challenger League, we see the value in everyone. Our adaptive baseball program serves youth ages 3 – 18 with physical and intellectual challenges. We believe everyone should experience the joy of sports and we welcome all abilities on our team. There is no cost to the families, and no player is denied.

A lot has happened since we started an Evansville-area Challenger league in 2014. We’ve had over 5,550 community volunteers and served upwards of 150 young athletes throughout Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois. 

In 2015, we were honored as the National League of the Year. And we’re proud to announce that Highland Baseball Challenger League was invited to appear at the Little League® World Series on August 25, 2018 in Williamsport, PA
