Challenger Baseball is designed to provide a program for the mentally and physically challenged children and adults to enjoy the full benefits of baseball, teamwork, sportsmanship, and fun in an environment designed specifically to meet the needs of each challenged athlete.
With the inception of the Wooden Bat Classic in 1997, so was the adoption of Tri-County Challenger Baseball as its official charity. In the beginning, Bob Wagner raised funds through annual "kangaroo courts" of each team participating in the WBC. Although the "kangaroo courts" are in the past, the WBC players are asked each year to donate to the Challenger program. These funds help the Challenger program purchase uniforms, equipment, as well as other support devices and make this worthwhile and inspirational program a continuing success story.
