Hampton baseball to host 500 for jamboree

B.C. Challenger Jamboree comes to Hampton Park on Saturday

Hampton Little League is hosting the B.C. Challenger Jamboree at Hampton Park on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with 500 participants from 30 teams across B.C.

The day starts with a parade of players at 11 a.m. and includes mascots, balloon twisters and 27 baseball games spread across nine fields.

Challenger Baseball is based on the understanding that kids with a wide variety of disabilities have the ability to play baseball, build skills, be part of a team, make friends and have a lot of fun. The Challenger Division teams up the players with an able-bodied buddy from their community to provide assistance to the Challenger players at bat and in the field, when it’s needed.
