GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Now that all the teams are in town, the annual events leading up the JUCO World Series have gotten underway, and that includes the Challengers baseball buddies game.

All eight of the Challenger teams partnered up with members of four JUCO teams: Midland, Spartanburg, Johnson county and Blinn College.

It's always one of the most anticipated events of the entire JUCO celebration as the kids and players each have a fun afternoon on the diamonds.

It all began about ten years ago when Challengers had just a handful of kids and one JUCO team to participate in the games, but now its grown to the four teams and more than 75 participants today. It's something everyone involved will certainly remember for a long time.
