Little League, MLB clubs to host ‘Little League Days’
For thousands of Little Leaguers around the United States, the idea of going to a Major League Baseball game has always been something to dream about, and thanks to the work between Little League and Major League Baseball, those dreams can become a reality.
As part of the growing partnership by Little League and MLB that is focused on fostering interest and encouraging participation in youth-centered baseball and softball activities, and continued efforts by MLB clubs around the nation, “Little League Days” will provide opportunities for local youth baseball and softball players to experience a professional baseball game at a ballpark near them.
This year, a total of 25 Major League Baseball clubs will be opening their ballparks to local youth baseball and softball players to provide memorable opportunities and experiences for the future stars of the game. While each club’s Little League Days are set to be unique, many will provide discounted tickets for Little Leaguers, the opportunity to use tickets as fundraisers and will provide the Little Leaguers the opportunity for a special on-field experience.
The MLB teams participating are the Arizona Diamondbacks, Atlanta Braves, Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians, Colorado Rockies, Houston Astros, Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, Miami Marlins, Milwaukee Brewers, Minnesota Twins, New York Mets, New York Yankees, Oakland Athletics, Philadelphia Phillies, Pittsburgh Pirates, San Francisco Giants, Seattle Mariners, St. Louis Cardinals, Tampa Bay Rays, Texas Rangers and Washington Nationals.
