Baseball Factory’s Little League Experience Draws Throng of Players
66 Little Leaguers Spend Memorial Day Weekend at Little League International
The Little League Experience, hosted by Little League International and powered by Baseball Factory, welcomed 66 players over the Memorial Day weekend.
For the third consecutive year, Little League Baseball and Softball based in South Williamsport, Pa., offered the unique opportunity for Little Leaguers, league-age 11-12, to receive elite instruction and train on the fields at the home of the Little League Baseball World Series.
“Players from all over the country visited, learned, and played, but more importantly, had fun and made new friends,” Nick Caringi, Senior Director of Operations and Education for Little League Baseball and Softball, said. “The Baseball Factory staff once again outdid themselves and provided a great weekend.”
Players received more than 15 hours of instruction from a staff that included former college coaches, former professional players and professional scouts. Instruction covered all aspects of the game, highlighted by hitting, pitching fielding, throwing and base running.
“The Little League Experience offered the players in attendance several unique experiences, while also providing top-notch training from the staff at the Baseball Factory,” Mr. Caringi said. “The chance to train and play games on the World Series fields was one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for most players.”
The event participants were placed on teams and played a total of three games. Howard J. Lamade and Volunteer Stadiums, the same venues used to play the World Series games each August, were the game sites. Each team played at least one night game under the lights.
