SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (May 2, 2019) – To help celebrate Mother’s Day this Spring, The World of Little League Museum and Official Store (525 U.S. 15, South Williamsport, Pa.) will be launching a new “Mother’s May” Program that will grant mothers visiting the Museum during the month of May with free admission for life.

Mothers who visit the Museum during the month of May will receive free admission for life.

“Each year, we look to find ways to celebrate Mother’s Day and honor all mothers for the dedication, time, and support they provide to children all around the world,” said Lance Van Auken, Little League Vice President and Executive Director of the Museum. “This May, we want to honor their dedication by providing all mothers who visit the Museum with free admission for life as we open our doors and eternally thank them for everything they do.”

Upon arrival to the Museum throughout the month of May, mothers will be provided with a lifetime admission card that they can hold on to and use at any time in the future to gain free access to the entire World of Little League Museum.

In addition to this month-long celebration, the Museum will also be offering its visitors the opportunity to create a spring craft on Saturday, May 4, that can be used for Mother’s Day and the start of the Spring season.
