EUGENE – The Eugene Challengers, a AAA American Legion Baseball team, are back in action for summer ball.

If it was on ESPN’s analytics, we probably had a 99.9% chance to lose that game,” Challengers head coach Kenny Niles said. “But we stayed resilient and battled. Hopefully, this can kind of catapult us into a little bit of chemistry and feeling like we’re never out of a baseball game.”
