PRESS RELEASE (9/27/2013) – Craig Scott Capital, a registered broker-dealer located in Uniondale, NY, has made a donation to the East Meadow Baseball Softball Association’s Challenger League.

The Challenger League provides a baseball environment to children with special needs. In this environment, the league gives children the opportunity to play baseball and experience exciting, friendly and fun competition.

The League is completely free for all players. Volunteers run all on-field and off-field activities. To cover costs for field rentals, uniforms, bats, balls and various other equipment, the League welcomes the generous financial support of local businesses and households.

Five different teams support various skill levels – ranging from children with severe special needs who have “Buddies” who follow them to the plate to help them bat and stand with them in the field to children able to play a full game with balls and strikes.

In describing how children without disabilities from the little league baseball league and softball programs buddy up with Challenger League players, League founder Lee Cook observes, “It’s building a new generation of people who go out and care about others. They give back, and that’s amazing. We barbecue for the kids, they get trophies, and it’s just a great program.”

Teams play on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. starting mid-April. The season continues through June, and the kids also play in September and October.
