Little League Baseball has become the world's largest organized youth sports program. In the space of just six decades, Little League has grown from three teams to nearly 200,000 teams, in all 50 U.S. states and more than 80 countries.
And the basic goal remains the same as it did in 1939, to give the children of the world a game that provides fundamental principles (sportsmanship, fair play and teamwork) they can use later in life to become good citizens.
The Little League World Series welcomes players from all over the world. Watch the best teams in Little League Baseball battle it out for the top spot in this incredible world wide event.
While watching your favorite teams, be sure to take some time to visit the Peter J. McGovern Little League Museum. It is a wonderful tribute to the excitement of Little League baseball past and present. http://www.littleleague.org/learn/museum.htm
