LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL
by posted 12/26/2017

Why North Penn Little League Is Such An Enduring Institution

Every Cotton Swab is not a "Q-Tip" and every tissue is not a "Kleenex". The same holds true for youth baseball; every league is not a Little League. Little League just seems like the fundamental phrase everyone uses because it has been a part of our childhood since 1939.

Several generations have now grown up playing for Hatfield or Lansdale Little Leagues. The two Leagues have since merged to create North Penn Little League and we are now THE ONLY Little League in the North Penn Area. We fill our baseball diamonds with children every season, and crowd the first and third base sides with parents and family in folding chairs and on the bleachers. As they cheer for their children in hopes of playing in the prestigious tournaments that lead to the Little League World Series, Intermediate World Series, Junior League World Series and Senior League World Series!

Even though only chartered Little Leagues can play in these tournaments it not just about playing in tournaments! Little League seems to be a universal part of growing up in America? Part of it has to do with the benefits that kids get from playing Little League baseball. Of course, the game itself is a fun pastime, but there are plenty of crucial social skills that children work on when they’re playing North Penn Little League.

  • Children have to learn patience, how to pay attention to the game, and when to focus themselves on the field. These are all essential qualities for a ballplayer, but they also spill over into many other areas of life. Learning to be a little more disciplined on the field can translate to better focus in the classroom or at home, too.
  • Kids also get a lesson in communication every time they step onto the diamond. A baseball team that doesn’t communicate well is a baseball team that won’t be winning a lot of games. Little League gives kids an opportunity to build those communication skills and socialize with other children. They have to learn to work together as a team to win.
  • That brings us to another benefit of Little League—instilling the idea of teamwork and cooperation. In some sports, one or two great players can completely change the game. In baseball there isn’t the option to pass the ball to a better teammate when it comes your way. Each player is involved in the game, and they all have to learn to work together and encourage each other in order to win.
  • Unfortunately, not every team can win every game. That’s another lesson that Little League teaches children. It’s okay to lose sometimes, as long as you’ve given it your best effort. It’s a gentle way to prepare them for inevitable disappointments that will come their way later in life. Little League teaches kids that it’s how you react to a loss that really matters.

The kids probably aren’t thinking about the life lessons that they’re learning on the diamond, but looking back, they’ll see some important, character building moments in their childhood.

Parents who have played Little League themselves realize this, and that’s why they continue to encourage their kids to play "Little League Baseball".
