SPORT IN GASTON IA
LIIILE LEAGUE Baseball was
organized in 1939 in Williamsport,
Pennsylvania. The organizer, Carl
E. Stotz, a native son of Williams
port, realized that boys 12 and
under needed more than anything
else, competition in their own age
group with field and other equip
ment trimmed down to their size.
Carl Stotz had seen too many
youngsters sit on the sidelines un
able to get in the game because
they were too small or too young.
He’d been a very real part of the
“heartbreak” as a kid, and, as a
man, he’d watched the disappoint
ment so often that he did some
thing about it.
He organized Little League
Baseball for boys in that age
group. The start in Wililamsport
was a three-team league with 12
uniformed players on each team,
and the game played on a diamond
two-thirds the size of a regulation
That was in 1939, the idea was
an immediate success and the
growth of Little League Baseball
has been phenomenal. The 1951
season showed 776 leagues organ
ized comprising 3,333 teams with
approximately 60,000 boys, twelve
years of age and under on the
roster of regular ‘first’ teams.
In 1951 Little Leagues were
organized in 28 states across the
nation and operates also in Alaska,
Hawaii, Canada, Canal Zone,
Puerto Rico, and Cuba.
