LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL
Founded in 1939, Little League Baseball and Softball is the world’s largest organized youth sports program. Each year, 3 million youngsters play Little League Baseball and Softball in over 6,000 leagues spread across the globe in thousands of rural and urban communities alike.
Little League Baseball is a non-profit organization whose mission is to “to promote, develop, supervise, and voluntarily assist in all lawful ways, the interest of those who will participate in Little League Baseball and Softball.”
Through proper guidance and exemplary leadership, the Little League program assists youth in developing the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well-being. By espousing the virtues of character, courage and loyalty, the Little League Baseball and Softball program is designed to develop superior citizens rather than superior athletes.
Since 1947 the Little League World Series baseball tournament for children aged 11, 12 and 13 years old is held every August in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The tournament has gained world wide popularity and recognition and now the Little League World Series is one of eleven tournaments sponsored by Little League International. Each of them brings baseball or softball all-star teams from around the world together in one of four age divisions.
