Activities

Baseball
Eddie's Club and Springfield Challenger Baseball offers your player an opportunity to participate in baseball, regardless of skill level—we tailor the game to suit the abilities of our players. We don’t count strikes and we don’t count outs. Everybody scores each inning and everybody wins. Each player gets the opportunity to play defense, bat and score each inning.
