1940 - Original Field


A new playing site is used near the original field

A second league is formed in Williamsport, modeled on Carl Stotz’s pilot program

Rosters are limited by guidelines outlining the area from which the leagues can draw players, a process that continues today.

Formal, written agreements are drawn up that would become the basis for Little League's annual chartering process (see an example below). Today, any community wishing to participate in Little League, annually completes and submits a charter application. Once approved by Little League International, that league is an accepted as a member of the Little League organization.
