The Syracuse Challenger Baseball program is the largest single district Little League International Challenger Baseball program for children and adults with special needs in the country. In 1982, Syracuse Challenger Baseball was created by a group of parents in Eastwood. Lead by Skip Soule, they wanted a safe and fun place for children with special needs to play baseball. Across the country similar Challenger programs began surfacing at such a rapid pace, that in 1989, Little League International created a special “Challenger Baseball Division” to recognize these special baseball players as members of Little League International. Syracuse Challenger Baseball was chartered as an official Little League Challenger pram that same year. As the Syracuse Challenger baseball grew, with no home field of their own and traveled around Onondaga County looking for a place to play their games and call home.
