PITTSTON, Pa. – Each year, during the Little League Baseball® World Series, two Little League Challenger Division® teams are showcased in an exhibition game. This year, teams from Camp Hill Pennsylvania and Grand Junction Colorado will play during the television broadcast on Saturday, Aug. 27 at 10:30 a.m. on WVIA-TV live from Volunteer Stadium on the Little League International Complex in South Williamsport, PA.

 

Major funding for the telecast is provided by the First Community Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania (FCFP).

The Challenger Division® was established in 1989 as a separate division of Little League that enables boys and girls with physical and developmental challenges, ages 4-18, or up to age 22 if still enrolled in high school, to enjoy the game of baseball.

 

The teams playing in the Challenger game as part of the World Series this year are representing more than 30,000 Challenger players and more than 900 leagues worldwide.
