Sports Illustrated Tips Cap to Little League Baseball World Series for Offering Inexpensive, Family-Friendly Youth Sports Venue

In 1999, Sports Illustrated named Little League’s Lamade Stadium the No. 16 venue in the world for watching a sporting event among its list of top 20 venues. Recently, writers at SI released their list of the 25 best summer sports bargains in the United States, and this time the Little League Baseball World Series ranked 12th.

“In Sports on the cheap: The 25 best summer sports bargains,” Sports Illustrated cross-crossed the sports spectrum, rating both professional and amateur venues. Of the 25 “bargains” On SI’s list, the Little League Baseball World Series was the only one directly servicing youth sports fans.

In its review of the Little League Baseball World Series, SI writers cited: “… The LLWS highlights the best 12 and 13-year-olds in the country, playing for the right to represent the U.S. in the world-championship game. Admission is free, and how's this for a deal: a hot dog, soda and Cracker Jacks will run you $3.”
