The Eugene Challengers are a non-profit baseball organization located in Eugene, OR. We are affiliated with American Legion Baseball. Our home games are played at Swede Johnson Stadium, a state of the art facility built completely by volunteers. The Eugene Challengers is made up of boys ages 15-19 from these local high school baseball teams Churchill High School, Marist High School, North Eugene High School, Sheldon High School, Willamette High School, Crow High School, Elmira High School, Junction City High School, and Monroe High School. We roster the best 18 boys from these teams with 2 swing players.
We host the Papa’s Pizza Invitational Tournament annually around the 4th of July as well as the Grant Smith Wood Bat Tournament each year. We are also hosts to other tournaments for the local High Schools throughout the year. We are a part of Area 4, the toughest Legion baseball league in the state of Oregon, along with Willamette Valley Titans, Roseburg Dr. Stewarts, Grants Pass Nuggets, Medford Mustangs, and Klamath Falls Falcons.
