Save the date... On Sunday, April 27th at 1:30 pm, the DLL Challenger team will be hosting the TVLL team at Osage Park Field #1. Please come on out and cheer on these athletes! We will have the Snack Shack open and are looking for as much support as possible from our League. If you've never been to a Challenger game, it's a heartwarming experience you'll never forget. Bring the family out and enjoy the afternoon.
A Message from the Chairman
As hundreds of dedicated Little League® volunteers gathered in Minnesota for the 26th Little League International Congress, it struck me that while we all come from different places with different backgrounds, Little League volunteers are remarkably the same. We are passionate. We are dedicated. And we are working to make Little League the best organization for the children who play baseball and softball.
At Little League International, every week is National Volunteer Week. The world joins us in thanking volunteers, though, from April 6 to 12, 2014. This year is a special one for Little League. As you know, 2014 is Little League’s Diamond Anniversary. For 75 years, the passion of Little League volunteers has brought the Little League experience to millions of children in thousands of communities in hundreds of countries.
A lot has changed over 75 years, but Little League is relevant as ever. The lessons of teamwork, dedication and hard work, and the importance of community togetherness will always be valued. And it’s the volunteers like you who instill these tenants of Little League in players, parents and fellow volunteers day in and day out.
We hope that you take the time to share in this year’s 75th Anniversary celebration by sharing your memories with the Little League Big Legacy Project. This digital mosaic will help bring thousands of great Little League moments together, while supporting Pitch In For Baseball, and helping more children around the world make new Little League memories.
As always, we sincerely thank you for all of your time, work and dedication to the Little League program. We wish you the best of luck this season, and we hope you join us in celebrating Little League’s Diamond Anniversary.
Dr. Davie Jane Gilmour
Chairman of the Little League International Board of Directors
