History of the LLWS

Little League originated back in the late years of the Civil War. The young soliders would use large sticks as bats, rocks as baseball and their hats as bases. Little League has came along since then. In 1938, Carl Stotz founded on of the first little league in Williamsport, PA. He wanted to have kids in his community have fun during the long summer. Since the first offical Little League World Series in 1947, the league has exploded in popularatiy. Almost every part of the country and world has a little league team. Each year, more and more kids participate on teams to make it to the LLWS.

In 2015, it will make it the 76th anniversary since the first LLWS in 1939
