Challenger League in Kerens set for fourth season, with no entry fee

Corsicana — It’s that time of year again.

The Central Texas Challenger League is back with its two-week season of baseball for boys and girls 8 to 18 (or still in school) from Navarro, Henderson and Freestone counties with mental or physical handicaps.

There is no cost to play this year, and registration forms are available at Innovative Therapies, Custom T’s and the Corsicana Daily Sun, all in Corsicana.

Registration for the fourth season will take place from 10 to 11:30 a.m. June 1 at the Kerens High School Softball Field, site of all Challenger League practices and games.

Practice and “buddy” training will take place June 8, followed by games June 15 and 22. Practice and games start at 9 a.m., and the morning activities usually wrap up within an hour and a half. Opening day features a grand entrance by the players.

The players cannot have the ability to participate in regular baseball or softball leagues. Kids from outside that designated three-county area will not be turned away.

Parents are also encouraged to talk to special education teachers about obtaining forms.

For people or businesses interested in making a donation, or for more information, contact President Deena Davis at (903) 879-4296.
