Who We Are

The Emerald 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 Emerald Challengers will field two teams – a triple-A team with participants aged 15 – 19 and a single-A or developmental team with participants aged 15 – 17. Both teams have a 20-plus game schedule from June through August.


We would like to thank Overhead Door Company of Eugene-Springfield for their support as our team sponsor, your partnership with us makes a difference in the lives of the young men who play Challenger baseball and provides opportunities for the youth in our community to showcase their talent each and every summer.
