This week we take a break from talking about the stock market. We won’t discuss bonds and interest rates. We also won’t talk about the economy and recessions. This week we talk about The Little League World Series.
 
Dad and I traveled to Williamsport, PA to attend the first weekend of The Little League World Series. For baseball fans, this is an incredible event. 

Podcast: Going To The Little League World Series

The Little League World Series Complex

This tournament takes place in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. It involves 16 teams: 8 from the US and 8 from other countries. The complex consists of two beautiful stadiums.

Volunteer Stadium

This is where the international teams play the early rounds.

This is the main stadium.  It is a venue Sports Illustrated called one of the 20 places they would go to to watch a game.  Bleacher Report called it one of the 25 most iconic places to watch a game.  It lived up to the hype.w

These Kids Can Play

Sometimes when you are watching, it is hard to remember these kids are only 11 and 12 years old. They play the game at a high level. We saw diving stops, amazing catches, and this unusual 1-5-4 double play.

There are all kinds of highlights on the Little League website.  And here are some of the plays from prior years. 

A Family Friendly Bucket List Trip for Baseball Fans

If you are a baseball fan or have a child or a grandchild who is involved in the game, this is a trip to make. They don’t sell tickets. Parking is free—with shuttles from the lots to the stadium. And concessions are reasonable. They have plenty of activities for kids as well.
 
From Marietta, it’s about a 5½ to 6 hour drive (depending on how many times you stop).
 
Most of all it is a chance to make some memories.  A trip with your kids, or in my case, a trip with my dad, is something you will remember and cherish for a long time.
