Special-needs players to take field for Little League World Series exhibition
WOODSTOCK – A few kids in Woodstock who didn’t have the opportunity to play Little League baseball before last year will take the field on the sport’s biggest stage.
Illinois’ District 13 was selected to field a team from its three special-needs Challenger leagues – Woodstock, Bartlett and Tri-Cities – to compete in an exhibition game at Volunteer Stadium in South Williamsport, Pa., the site of the Little League World Series. The game will precede the Little League World Series International and U.S. championship games Aug. 24.
District 13 and its opponent, District 57 in Livermore, Calif., were selected from 900 Challenger leagues worldwide to play the exhibition, which will air on ESPN3.
