The Saratoga Springs Little League Challenger Division is set to have their baseball game "Under The Lights" on Friday May 31, 2019 at 7:45pm at the West Side Major Field. The Little League’s adaptive baseball program has been part of the Saratoga Springs Little League for 4 years now thanks to the planning and organization of past and present leadership from the Saratoga Little League board led by Derrick Legall, President of the Saratoga Little League.
This program gives all of our players with specialized needs a place to join in and play the game of baseball in our community. We are inviting all of our Saratoga Little League families to join in and cheer on the Challenger players at the West Side Major League field for a fun filled night starting at 7:00pm.
We would like to encourage all little league players to wear their uniform (and 12 year olds to wear their jackets) for the night as they will be asked to come on to the field for the National Anthem. Thanks to Stewart's, we are scooping free Stewart's ice cream for all for being at this event.
