Little League® International joins the world in mourning the innocent lives lost in the Robb Elementary School shooting in Uvalde, Texas, on May 24. The horrific tragedy claimed so many lives, many of whom were also members of the Little League family, largely in the Uvalde Little League.

“As a Texan, father, and former local Little League President, I cannot fathom the pain being felt in the homes of the victims of the Robb Elementary School shooting and throughout the entire Uvalde community.”

“There are no appropriate words to share that can ease the sense of pain and loss the Uvalde community feels today,” said Stephen D. Keener, Little League President and CEO. “Since 1959, the Uvalde community has come together at their Little League fields, and the tragic loss of these lives will be felt forever. The entire Little League family around the world is with the Uvalde Little League and all who are hurting at this dark time. Our deepest condolences go to the families, friends, volunteers, and community members of all of the victims of this senseless act of violence.”
