Congressman Jim Hines threw out the first pitch on May 12 as Ridgefield Little League’s Holland Division took on Fairfield. RLL’s Holland Division participates as part of the Fairfield County Little League Challenger program.

Little League Baseball established the Challenger Program in 1989 to enable boys and girls with physical and mental disabilities to enjoy the game of baseball.

Garry Berger founded RLL’s team in 2006 and remains the teams manager.
