First Name is Drawn for World Series Tickets

Little League mascot Dugout looks on as South Williamsport Mayor William Miller draws the first name in the Little League Baseball World Series ticket lottery on April 1, 2003, at the Peter J. McGovern Little League Museum.

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (April 1, 2003) – It was no joke today at the Peter J. McGovern Little League Museum when Susan Doran’s name was the first one drawn by South Williamsport Mayor William Miller in the Little League Baseball World Series ticket lottery.

Ms. Doran of Princeton, N.J., will receive four tickets to the Little League Baseball World Series World Championship Game, set for Aug. 24 at Howard J. Lamade Stadium, site of every World Series since 1959. She also will receive four World Series caps, t-shirts, trading pins, souvenir programs and museum admissions as a bonus for being the first participant selected. 

 

Each year, those desiring tickets for the World Championship Game prepare a letter requesting up to four tickets for the final game. The letter must be received at Little League after Jan. 1, and by the close of business on Feb. 28 to be considered. Ms. Doran’s name was the first of 250 drawn from among more than 1,500 entries.

Little League Baseball will notify (by mail) those individuals selected to receive tickets from the lottery process. Those whose entries are not chosen will receive a postcard saying they may still attend the final game, watching from the terraced hills beyond the outfield fence where tickets are not required. While tickets for certain areas of the stadiums are required, they are not required for other sections for most games.

The 2003 Little League Baseball World Series begins on Aug. 15. The schedule of game times and information on attending the World Series can be found at: http://www.littleleague.org/allabout/seriesgeneral.htm
