Our own Somerville Police Department’s Officer Sergio Costa represented the Somerville Police as one of the participating escorts for the 2019 Little League Challenger Division® Massachusetts Teams.
Many of the children being escorted today are inspiring heroes. We were very happy to participate with this small gesture. Good Luck to all the participating teams in this World Series!
“The 2019 Little League Challenger Division Exhibition Game will take place on Saturday, August 24, at 10:30 a.m. and showcase the opportunities that the Little League Challenger Division provides to more than 30,000 children with physical and intellectual challenges at more than 900 leagues worldwide.
The Little League Challenger Division Exhibition Game has been a part of the Little League Baseball World Series schedule since 2001. Little League® International supports the participating leagues with a $15,000 grant to help offset the costs for the teams to participate in the Exhibition Game.
For the eighth year in a row, the game will be broadcast live on northeastern Pennsylvania’s and the Central Susquehanna Valley’s PBS Station, WVIA.”
