HAMILTON, Ga. (WTVM) - An old tradition returned to Harris County over the weekend. The local little league brought back Challenger Division softball, which is a league for players with special needs. Kids from the Harris County school system were split into two teams for a matchup against one another.

This event was created to give children with special needs the opportunity to be a part of a team because many are unable to participate in regular athletics.

“I want them to have the opportunity to be a part of something that is just about them,” says special education teacher Emily Banks.
