This book is a photographic companion book to “Play Ball! The Story of Little League Baseball” (Penn State University Press). It profiles more than five decades of the World Series.
In 1947, when the first Little League Baseball World Series was played, there were seventeen teams in two states. Since then, Little League has achieved global recognition and has touched the lives of children and families in more than one hundred countries.
Now, millions more tune in to ABC’s Wide World of Sports and ESPN for live coverage of the final game. Little League Baseball has enriched the lives of more than 30 million boys and girls who have worn a Little League uniform.
