2015 Jake Hardison Memorial Challenger Jamboree

Virginia District 8 will host the 2015 Jake Hardison Memorial Challenger Jamboree, May 8-10, 2015, at the Azalea Little League Complex in Norfolk.  Formerly known as the “Challenger Little League Baseball World Jamboree,” the event was renamed in honor of Jake Hardison, District 8 Administrator for 35 years (1975-2010), who created the first ever Challenger Tournament and Fun Weekend in 1992.
