The Legacy of Little League
Little League was founded in 1939 by Carl E. Stotz in Williamsport, just four miles north of here. Since the first year, it has operated with a singular goal: to help teach children the values of teamwork, sportsmanship, and fair play so that those values may be applied to their adult lives.
This beautiful overlook of Howard J. Lamade Stadium, site of the annual Little League Baseball World Series, is courtesy of the First Community Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania. For several decades, the Foundation has provided support for many projects at Little League International, and continues to be one of the greatest assets in the area.
