New this year parents and players will sit in the same designated Challenger section. You must sign up here for free tickets for players and coaches that are attending by May 26th.

  • Parents – MUST purchase tickets to enter stadium.  You can buy them online here.
    • Only guaranteed to sit in same section if they purchase tickets before May 26th with the promo code Challenger.
    • Available tickets within the same section might have to be capped depending on availability (tickets within the stadium will still be available for purchase).
    • You DO NOT need to purchase tickets for the player. Players are free.
    • Parents, caregivers or mentors will be sitting in the same SECTION and not necessarily have a ticket located directly next to the player they arrived with but we are lenient on movement within our section.
  • Players – Please come dressed in their uniform and meet us at the business office entrance to the stadium.


Any Challenger player that comes in uniform gets in for free. A Challenger player will throw out the first pitch. Parents and mentors get in for $1. Plus a 50/50 raffle will be going on with the proceeds benefiting Challenger Baseball.  We hope you will show your support to JJ and attend the game.  Let your coach know if you will be attending and we’ll throw the names in a hat for the first pitch!  (First pitch is 5:15pm)


On June 20th JJ’s Spartan college players will be at our fields helping our teams. They will be helping with practice and game skills.  Be ready to be coached by future major league baseball players!


We are so thrilled to have the Enforcers helping out at our Mattydale fields. The club is filled with present and former military and police who like to do community work to raise awareness and do community service for the groups that need their help.  It helps our community to have every vigilant and trained officers to help us in times of need. Please welcome them to our fields this year.
