The 2nd season of Challenger Little League baseball is in the books. And it’s hard to tell who had more fun: the boys and girls with disabilities, or the “buddies” who helped them.
18 “Westport Winner” players faced Greenwich yesterday, at the season-ender on Meyer Field.
As always, each Winner had a buddy to help them at bat and in the field. This time the buddies included the regulars — players’ siblings, and commissioners’ and coaches’ kids — plus special guests: 8 of the 11 boys from last summer’s Little League World Series squad. Scott Stagg and Mike Connors are the highly regarded coaches.
After the game, the players and their buddies shared pizzas. Then came trophies, and player-picture baseball cards for all.
Everyone is already looking forward to next year. Congrats to all involved in this Challenger program — which is really no challenge at all.
