What makes Little League unique?

Little League is steeped in American tradition.

The first game was played on June 6th, 1939 in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.   The first Little League baseball game was televised in in 1953 with Howard Cosell providing the play by play and today the Little League World Series is a major television event each summer on ESPN.    Little League is built upon three pillars - sportsmanship, fair play and team work.

Volunteer Based.  

Little League is a 100% volunteer organization and formally a 501(3)c non-profit organization.  The people running this league and those participating in coaching baseball have only one goal in mind - teaching kids to love baseball.    We depend on parents and alumni to continue the Little League tradition.


Little League strives to provide fair competition at all levels.  This starts by the formation of league boundaries, whereby leagues can only be so big as to have 12 Majors Level teams. This restricts the player pool for every Little League across the nation, ensuring that each league has a fair chance of competing.    At the team level teams are form by a skills assessment and draft process (for players at the AAA or Majors levels).  This is a fundamental premise that strives to ensure teams are balanced and competitive.


There is a division of play for everybody in Little League.  From T-Ball through Majors, kids of all levels and skills are encouraged to play.  Mandatory play requirements exist at all levels, ensuring that time on the field is well spent for each player.  This stepped approach from T-Ball to competitive play teaches our kids baseball fundamentals with a focus on competition, not winning.
