1910 — 1992

—A Promise Kept —


"How would you like to play on a regular team with uniforms, a new ball for every game, and bats you can really swing?" Carl asked his nephews.
After Carl received 56 sponsorship rejections, his perseverance triumphed, and in 1939 his dream became a reality: Williamsport, Pennsylvania, became the birthplace of Little League Baseball.
Little League's founder gave a part of Americana to the world. Those who knew him saw a man of profound integrity and character. Truly one of the greatest men of all times. The ideals by which he lived are the ultimate measure of this extraordinary man.
He remains Mr. Little League
