Since 2005, Little League® and Pitch In For Baseball have been partners in helping children around the world get new and gently used baseball and softball equipment. Honoring this nearly 10-year friendship, Stephen D. Keener, Little League President and CEO, presented Pitch In For Baseball with the President’s Award at the 26th Little League International Congress in Minneapolis, Minn. On hand to accept the recognition were Roy Smalley, former Minneapolis Twins player and Pitch In For Baseball Board of Directors President, and David Rhode, Pitch In For Baseball Executive Director.
Little League District Administrators are some of the most dedicated, tireless volunteers in the Little League program. At the 26th Little League International Congress, Little League recognized Maryellen Holden, Connecticut District 5 Administrator, with its highest honor, the Peter J. McGovern Distinguished Service Award. This award has been presented at the past 24 Little League International Congresses, and Mrs. Holden is first woman to receive the honor for her dedicated service.
