After receiving more than 3,100 submissions throughout the course of two months, Little League® Baseball and Softball is pleased to announce the top three photos of the 2023 Little League Photo Contest. In addition to recognition in the World of Little League® Museum and on the scoreboard during the Little League Baseball® World Series, the top three photos will also receive direct entry into the 2023 Professional Baseball Photographer’s Association Photo Contest, set to take place later this fall.
Launched on June 6, fans were encouraged to show the many ways they are celebrating the Little League program throughout their communities. From fun moments on and off the field to celebrations of inclusion, teamwork, and integrity, the 2023 Photo Contest allowed communities to show off the incredible smiles, thrilling high-fives, and the magical moments that make the Little League experience so special.
Below are the top three photos, which were selected based on input from a group of select professional photographers and content creators who have covered the Little League World Series.
