Challenger Division

Albany Little League Launched Our Challenger Division in 2013. We are the Albany Cardinals. We play on Sundays at 2pm. Our home games are at the Gilman Fields.

Gilman Field is in the Tom Bates Sports Complex. Here is a link to a Yelp site regarding the facilities:

To get to the south parking lot, which is arguably more accessible to the baseball field than the north parking lot, head towards San Francisco Bay (and the racetrack) on Gilman Street, turn left onto the Frontage Road, and take the first right into the south parking lot. The baseball field is just past the soccer fields. It tends to be cool and breezy most days, and it would be prudent to dress warmly and wear a jacket.

About Challenger

The Challenger Division of Little League is a program for mentally and physically challenged youth, helping them to enjoy the full benefits of Little League participation in an athletic environment structured to their abilities. Challenger Division players have the opportunity to experience the joys of pulling together as a team, being cheered, and just plain having fun!

There is no cost to the players. Parents and guardians are asked to participate as “Buddies” whenever possible. All players will be given a jersey and a team hat!

All games will be held on Sundays at 2:00 at home and on fields throughout the District! Those who join the ALL teams, will also get to participate in 2014 District Little League Jamboree.
