Mayor Gary Christenson and the City of Malden will be rolling out the red carpet for the special athletes competing in the District 12 Challenger Day on Sunday, August 21st at 12 Noon at Bruce Field, adjacent to the Irish American Club, 177 West Street, Malden. The District 12 Challenger Day offers children with disabilities the opportunity to take the field and play baseball.
The game has all the fanfare of a major league all-star game where state and local government officials, the Malden Police and Fire Department Color Guards, costumed characters, and hundreds of fans come together to cheer on these young athletes. More than 75 participants from Medford, Malden, Wakefield, Lynn, Billerica and other surrounding cities will be taking part. Event sponsors include Teamsters Local 25, Pearl Street Station, Red Sox Foundation, The Jimmy Fund, Brian Higgins Foundation, Medford Invitational Tournament, Wegmans, and Minuteman Press of Malden.
