District 27 Little League
"From the very first day in the summer of 1939 when Carl Stotz pledged to his nephews he would work out a plan for a league, Little League Baseball has relied on the efforts and contributions of volunteers" from Growing Up at Bat By Harvey Frommer.
The backbone of Little League is its army of volunteers. From its beginning, with only a few people involved, Little League has become an international program with almost 1 million volunteers.
This group of community minded people includes manager, coaches, umpires, scorekeepers, and snack shack workers. And let's not forget the players themselves. It is not unusual to see the players out there helping pick up trash, drag the fields or sell a hamburger or two.
