At TJM, we're big fans of not only Little League Baseball, but any form of youth league sports. This year marks 75 years since the first Little League team played their first game, and the organization has some great things in store to celebrate.
Founded by Carl Stotz in 1939, Little League has become not only an American institution, but an international one. Since the first teams took the field on June 6th, 1939, Little League has grown to include nearly 200,000 teams from all 50 states in the U.S. and overÂ 80 countries internationally.

With divisions for boys and girls between the ages of 4 to 18, Little League offers something for everyone. Late in the season, each division holds a World Series, often receiving plenty of media attention. The 11-13 age division Little League World Series is televised nationally on ESPN, with millions of fans across the country tuning in to watch in August.
The 75th anniversary is an important milestone for everyone involved with Little League. Little League officials even created a special mosaic for the occasion, featuring photos submitted by players and coaches around the world. Leagues around the country are finding their own ways to celebrate the anniversary, with events culminating in August at the Little League World Series.
TJM Promotions is proud to work with not only Little League teams, but all youth sports, designing and manufacturing their custom trading pins, wristbands, patches, and any other promotional products they may need. Baseball season is our busiest time of year, and we love being part of the action. Every year, we see thousands of unique designs come through, and we love seeing what the teams come up with.
Good luck to all teams this year, and we look forward to seeing the Little League World Series later this summer. We're sure this will be a great season, with the 75th ANNIVERSARY festivities taking place throughout the year. Stay tuned for more as we cover the events as they happen, and remember to make TJM Promotions the Number One location for promotional products for YOUR Little League team!
