Minor League Baseball (MiLB) is dedicated to providing an inclusive environment for all fans, including those with physical or intellectual challenges. The Challenger Division of the Minor Leagues is designed to accommodate players from 4 to 18 years old, or up to 22 years old if they are still enrolled in school. The Challenger Division of the Senior League can accommodate players aged 15 and over (no maximum age). The Challenger Division offers a unique opportunity for kids with disabilities to learn the basics of baseball and how to play as part of a team.
Games are not competitive and all players get a chance to bat every inning and reach the base. There is no scorekeeping and everyone has a great time for an hour or two, once a week on Sunday afternoons. MiLB also strives to engage with fans who have hearing problems or are deaf. To support these connections, MiLB teams have organized deaf awareness nights with jerseys featuring the team's name in American sign language and have organized baseball camps for children with hearing problems.
Additionally, many MiLB teams have organized mental health awareness nights, including the Quad Cities, River Bandits, Kane County Cougars, Louisville Bats, Eugene Emeralds, and others. These events have included awareness-raising t-shirts, opportunities for local organizations to provide educational materials to fans, suicide prevention education, and charitable donations to local organizations that support the cause.
