In Spring of 2013 for the first time ever, Dixon fielded a team for the Little League Challenger Division. A group of children, many of whom a baseball diamond had been off-limits due to cognitive or physical disability, realized their dream of participating in a team sport. However, they were not in it alone. Each child was assisted by a buddy, carefully "matched" with the player to help encourage them and keep them safe while also allowing them to be as independent as possible. These buddies, remarkable young men and woman set an example on that field for their peers, as each buddy gave endless time, understanding, and patience to give this special team of Little Leaguers their chance to shine.
