SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (March 27, 2019) – With another exciting MLB season upon us with the earliest Opening Day in history, thousands of Little Leaguers will once again have a chance to enjoy the unique experience of MLB Little League Days in 2019.

As part of the growing partnership between Little League and MLB, “Little League Days” provide opportunities for local youth baseball and softball players to experience a Major League Baseball game at a ballpark near them.


“Thanks to the strong support of Major League Baseball and each of the clubs, we can continue to create opportunities for Little Leaguers to experience the game of baseball at the highest level and enhance their interest in the game through these unique Little League Day experiences,” said Stephen D. Keener, Little League President and CEO. “We encourage all of our leagues and districts to explore these opportunities and take the time to share these memorable moments with their players, coaches, and volunteers at a ballpark in their area.”

This year, 26 of the 30 Major League Baseball clubs will be opening their ballparks to local youth baseball and softball players to provide memorable opportunities and experiences the players will carry with them for a lifetime. 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.
