Little League Baseball was started by a group of volunteer adults and it is today still active and growing within the world as the largest single volunteer youth sports program in the world. Through proper guidance and exemplary leadership, the Little League program assists youth in developing the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well-being. By espousing the virtues of character, courage and loyalty, the Little League Baseball and Softball program is designed to develop superior citizens rather than superior athletes.
Maryland District 1 has been blessed with many adults dedicating numerous years of volunteer work to support Little League and the children involved. The umpires who work every game during the regular season and also during tournament time need to be recognized everyday. They volunteer their time for the games and they attend clinics to better understand the game. When you see a volunteer umpire working a game, please say thank you and shake their hand for a job well done.
