Registration dates set 
for Challenger league

WOODSTOCK – Registration has begun for a special needs baseball league that sends each player to the field with a volunteer helper.

Players, volunteer “buddies” and managers can sign up for the Challenger Little League during three walk-in registration dates at the Woodstock VFW, 240 N. Throop St., Woodstock.

Registration is open from 3 to 5 p.m. Jan. 19, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Jan. 27, and from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Feb. 12.

Registration also is available online at www.woodstocklittleleague.com.

The Challenger league started last year as a way to give special needs children in McHenry County a chance to play little league baseball.
