Children from across the greater Rochester area poured onto Frontier Field Saturday for the 25th annual Challenger Baseball Little League World Series.

The league enables kids ages 6 to 18 who have mental and physical disabilities to play the game with the help of on-field buddies – other children and adults who guide them at bat, around the bases, and in the outfield.
