This summer, World of Little League®: Peter J. McGovern Museum and Official Store visitors will be able to learn about any of the 7,000+ baseball leagues in roughly 90 countries around the world by tapping photos, playing fun trivia games and sending messages, in a unique interactive exhibit, the Global Connections Touch Table.

“When we started the process of designing the new museum, we knew it needed to have the very latest technology,” Stephen D. Keener, President and Chief Executive Officer of Little League Baseball and Softball, said. “We also wanted anyone in the world to be able to take part in the new museum, even if they could not be here.”

On a table with an interactive, capacitive touch screen the size of two ping pong tables, visitors can check out leagues from around the world by tapping photos, history details or special notes left by the league. Visitors can even play a fun Little League-themed trivia game.

The Global Connections Touch Table includes basic information from every local Little League in the world. Click here to find out how you can add information from your local league to the Global Connections Table.
