The intersection at Third and Market Streets in downtown Williamsport has

been transformed into a baseball infield with 10 life-size bronze statues, which

commemorate different decades across Little League’s 75 years. Carl Stotz,

the founder of Little League Baseball, presides over the game from a bench

near home plate. Three baserunners trace the game’s evolution through the

years. A girl runner, representative of all girls who have played Little League,

is at first base; an Asian player wearing a 50th anniversary logo on his jersey is

at second base; and a player representing Little League’s Challenger program

with a 75th anniversary logo on his jersey is at third base. Lycoming College

partnered with Penn College to sponsor the statue of the catcher.
