Malden Hosting 8th Annual Challenger Day Games

Event Date

Sun Aug 17
1:00pm to 3:00pm

Mayor Gary Christenson and the City of Malden will once again be rolling out the red carpet for the special athletes competing in the Medford Invitational Tournament’s 8th Annual Challenger Day. The game is scheduled for Sunday, August 17, 2014 at 1:00 PM at Bruce Field, adjacent to the Irish American Club, 177 West Street, Malden. The Medford Invitational Challenger Day offers children with disabilities the opportunity to take the field and play baseball!

The game has all the fanfare of a major league all-star game where state and local government officials, the U.S. Coast Guard Color Guard, the Malden Police Department Color Guard, Wally the Green Monster, Blades the Bruins Bear, and hundreds of fans come together to cheer on these young athletes. This year the program has grown and more than 75 participants from Medford, Malden, Wakefield, Lynn, Billerica and other surrounding cities will be taking part.

“I’m honored that Malden is once again hosting this exciting event,” said Mayor Gary Christenson. “I commend Ron Giovino and all the volunteers for their commitment and hard work in making this event possible. The athletes are truly an inspiration to us all!”
