General Structure History of Baseball

  

Baseball is a team sport, in which a ball is thrown by a player called a pitcher and hit by another player with a bat.  Scoring involves running and touching four bases on the ground. Baseball is a very popular sport in the United States and is often called the "national pastime" As a result it has become a very popular sport for our young children.

Although Baseball is a team sport it is a game that will allow your child to achieve personal gratification.  It  will challenge them towards perfection of physical skills.  The very nature of the game proves to them that there is always another chance for success.  Baseball establishes the values of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play.

Little League is the name of a non-profit organization in the United States that organizes local children's baseball and softball leagues.  It was established, in 1939 by Carl Stotz, as a three-team league in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Today here are millions of Little League players in the United states as well as other countries around the world.  The purpose of Little League, other than fun, is to teach children about teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play.

Little League welcomes both boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 18.  Boys play baseball and girls play softball.  These "little leagues" are divided into four groups based on the age of the children playing and their baseball skills.  The divisions are Little league ( Tee Ball, Minor League and Major League), Junior league, Senior league and Big league.  The age-cutoffs between divisions may differ slightly from district to district.

The most important event in the Little League calendar is the annual Little League World Series. Tournaments are held throughout the USA and it's territories as well as across the rest of the world.
