Little Leaguer Newsletter

From the March 2017 Little Leaguer:

MLB Players to Attend Little League Games during the Day; Little Leaguers® and Their Families to Attend Major League Game at Renovated Bowman Field at Night as part of ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball

Little League® International is excited to welcome the Pittsburgh Pirates and the St. Louis Cardinals to the Little League Baseball® World Series in South Williamsport, Pa., on August 20, 2017. The Pirates and Cardinals will be part of the "MLB Little League Classic" that will take place at BB&T Park at Historic Bowman Field in Williamsport later that night. This special event will spotlight Little League International's commitment to working with MLB to celebrate youth baseball and softball through its PLAY BALL Initiative.

"We continue to work closely with our friends at Major League Baseball to find new and exciting ways to engage more children around the world with our great game. We look forward to welcoming the Pirates and the Cardinals to Williamsport during the Little League Baseball World Series this summer," said Stephen D. Keener, Little League President and CEO. "We are extremely grateful to Commissioner Manfred, the Pirates and Cardinals, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, state Senator Gene Yaw, and the Williamsport Crosscutters for their support of this exciting, new initiative, and we look forward to a fun and memorable MLB Little League Classic."

As part of the festivities surrounding the MLB Little League Classic, players from both the Pirates and the Cardinals will attend the Little League Baseball World Series in a first-of-its-kind show of support for youth baseball. Later that night, the players and families of the 16 teams competing in the Little League Baseball World Series will then be in attendance at the MLB Little League Classic at Bowman Field, which will air on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball and ESPN Radio at 7 p.m. (ET).
