Oriole Advocates Challenger Baseball (OACB) program is a recently created part of the Oriole Advocates Charitable Foundation that continues the work the Advocates have provided for many years to local and surrounding-area Challenger League teams.
Challenger teams provide an opportunity for players with physical or developmental challenges to participate in playing baseball to the maximum of their individual abilities.
In 2011, the Advocates identified over 60 teams serving over 850 athletes in Maryland, Southern Pennsylvania and Northern Virginia. In addition to holding 10 “Special Days” for these teams, the Advocates also hosted Challenger Day at Oriole Park for over 250 Challenger athletes.
Challenger Tournaments and clinics are being planned for 2012. Details will be posted here as they become available.
If you would like to donate, you may do so through the Donate page.
All contributions are tax deductible.
Challenger team coordinators
should contact challengerbaseball @ orioleadvocates.org for further information
about this new program and how we might partner in future activities.
The Oriole Advocates Challenger League is appreciative to have partnerships with the following:
OACB Tri-fold Flyer
Print the file on the right to make your own OACB tri-fold flyer. In your Print Properties choose Landscape mode; under Print on Both Sides, choose Flip on Short Edge. Print then fold for your OACB tri-fold flyer!
If your printer does not offer the option to print on both sides, in Landscape mode, print the file on the top right first. Then, take that printout and put in back in the paper feeder to print the second part of the flyer (the file on the bottom) on the back of what you just printed. Position the part of the flyer with the Oriole Advocates logo closest to the paper feeder and face up. Then, print the file on the bottom right. Now, fold for the OACBtri-fold flyer!
