WRITING THE STORY OF little league SINCE 1939

Born in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, in 1939, and alive today in communities all around the world, the Little League program has grown into the world’s largest youth sports organization with a story spanning across generations of families. But, our story is far from over, and it’s up to each of us to not only add our own chapters but to share the amazing stories of those who came before us.

No matter where you’re from or what team you root for, show your true colors. Play your part, and be the reason your community comes alive. Because we’re all here for the same reason. We are all number one fans, base coaches, rulebook experts, and would-be umpires. But more than anything, we’re together. And together, we are here to support one another and make sure EVERY child in our community feels welcome, supported, and most importantly has a chance to be a part of the Little League community.
