2009 Little League Photo Contest Award Winners Chosen
Stephen Meyer, a Little League volunteer from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, snapped a shot of his son, Brody Meyer, watching an Oakville Little League game. Mr. Meyer’s photo has been voted the winner of the 2009 Little League Photo Contest.
The second-place photo was taken by Juan DeLeon, a major division baseball manager in the North Shore (Texas) Little League. The subject was Noah Johnson catching a fly ball to left field during a 2009 eight-year-old Minor Division All-Star game.
Third place went to Jeff Lucia, who captured first baseman Sam Grantham concentrating on fielding a ground ball during a Bonsall-Fallbrook (Calif.) Little League Tee Ball game.
Little League volunteers from across the United States send in entries that are evaluated at Little League International and three winners are selected. This is the 12th year the contest has been conducted.
The three winning photographs, selected from more than 200 entries, will be on display at the Peter J. McGovern Little League Museum, with the top photographs from the past nine contests.
Voting is conducted by part- and full-time employees at Little League International in South Williamsport. Each of the winning photos can be viewed on the Internet at Little League’s website: www.LittleLeague.org.
Little League Baseball and Softball is the world’s largest organized youth sports program, with nearly 2.6 million players and one million adult volunteers in every U.S. state and scores of other countries.
