When it comes to baseball in Chicago, there are White Sox fans and there are Cubs fans. Never shall the two agree on which team to support.
 
When it comes to the Wabash Little League’s Challenger Division, White Sox and Cubs fans unite to support one group – the players.
 
The Challenger Division was created by Little League Baseball in 1989 as a way to allow those with physical and mental challenges to play baseball. This is the second year that Wabash Little League has offered such a division.
