[ARCHIVED] Malden to Host 15th Annual Challenger Day Games

Challenger Day 2017

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 15th Annual Challenger Day. The games will take place on Sunday, August 29, 2021 at 1PM on 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 Malden Police and Fire Department Color Guards, 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. Event sponsors include Pizzeria Regina, Teamsters Local 25, Wegmans, Kelly’s Roast Beef, and Xerox.

 “I commend Ron Giovino and all the volunteers for their commitment and hard work in making these games possible,” said Mayor Gary Christenson. “The athletes are truly an inspiration to us all!”

 For more information about the event or how to help support the program, please contact Ron Giovino at 617-365-0524 or rgiov21@comcast.net
