Community Heroes

Volunteer and Player Recognition

In Little League®, everyone has a position to play and it’s the more than one million dedicated volunteers who help make the Little League experience so memorable in communities all over the world. From first responders who take time to drive the fire truck in your Opening Ceremonies to the dedicated teacher who spends time volunteering in your concession stand each summer, every Little League program has a community hero who helps to inspire Little Leaguers® and rally the community together. Since 2020, we’ve seen our dedicated and selfless volunteers battling on the front lines as first responders, teachers, store owners, and more, all while continuing to make a memorable experience for their community on the Little League field as well.

Submit A Nomination

Help us recognize those community heroes who not only support your local Little League program, but also serve as tremendous role models within your community by submitting a nomination. Based on the nominations received, Little League International will recognize a number of these individuals on its official social media platforms (@LittleLeague) and leagues are encouraged to share these stories on their platforms as well using #LLCommunityHero.
