Jud Rogers, left, Little League International’s Senior Marketing Executive, and Liz Brown, the Senior Director of Marketing Partnerships for Little League International, were among the Little League staff members on hand at the 25th Little League International Congress in Lexington, Ky. Mr. Rogers, Mrs. Brown and Dawn Hall, Little League International Marketing Coordinator (not pictured), coordinated with the sponsors and licensees in attendance to help provide, access, information and materials to the Little League volunteers at the Congress.

Many of Little League International’s national sponsors and more than 35 licensees were present in Lexington, Ky., for the 25th Little League International Congress. On Friday and Saturday, March 12-13, displays and demonstrations were made available to nearly 1,200 Little League volunteers and guests attending the event.

For more than 50 years, Little League has partnered with at least one corporation on the national level to help defray the costs parents must pay associated with their children’s participation in Little League.

Local Little Leagues also recognize the value of sponsors in helping to make the program financially viable. In the very first season of play in 1939, three Williamsport, Pa., businesses sponsored the first three teams (Lundy Lumber, Lycoming Dairy and Jumbo Pretzel).

Today, a select group of companies has earned the right to call themselves “Official Sponsors” of Little League Baseball and Softball. These 16 companies have displayed a commitment to the children of Little League and to the ideals Little League volunteers work to instill in children around the world.

Little League thanks each of these special companies for participating in the 25th Congress event, and congratulates them on their commitment to the world’s youth.
