In addition to the current and former Angels, 350 Bank of America volunteers and local Little League "Buddies" will help make it a day to remember, including video display of the games on the Jumbotron, a team photo with an Angel player, special medal award ceremony near home plate and lunch.

Four sets of games will be played starting at 9 AM, 1 PM and 3 PM, with each age division playing a two-inning, one-hour game on designated diamonds on the outfield grass at Angel Stadium. Families, friends and baseball fans are invited to join Bank of America, the Angels Baseball Foundation at the Orange County Little League Challenger Classic.

Seating is open and free to the public. Enter at Angels Stadium at Gate 1.
