For many individuals with disabilities, a traditional baseball field of grass, gravel, and dirt is a barrier to playing the game. For some, playing baseball on a traditional field is difficult, dangerous, or even impossible. Because there are currently no handicap accessible baseball fields in any of the communities that are served by the Bobcats, our Challenger players must play on a traditional field.  To address the challenge to participation that traditional fields present, the Tinley Park Bobcats built a handicap accessible baseball field to eliminate the challenges and restrictions of a grass and dirt field and provide a surface that helps those who use crutches, a cane, a walker, a wheelchair, or other assistive devices for ambulation or those who have an unsteady gait.
