After the 75thth Anniversary of Little League Baseball® World Series this August and an exciting Summer of Softball that ended with the most-watched Little League Softball® World Series, Little League® International will welcome its softball community to the first-ever Girls with Game Experience event on Saturday, October 15, 2022 at the legendary Howard J. Lamade Stadium.
“This summer has been filled with incredible softball opportunities for kids across the country, and we look forward to delivering another unique experience right in the birthplace of Little League this fall,” said Ashlea Nash-Miller, Little League Director of Softball Development . “We hope this event will inspire future generations of the game and provide attendees with a unique opportunity to learn from Division I softball players and play on the legendary fields of the Little League World Series.”
The Girls with Game Experience, created in coordination with Penn State University and the University of Maryland and MBI Camps, offers a two-hour instructional clinic for women ages 9 through 14, led by representatives from both Division I universities within the Big Ten will be conference starting at 10 p.m. ET. After the clinic, all registered participants will have the opportunity to watch their coaches take the field at 4:30 p.m. between the two programs at Howard J. Lamade Stadium, home of the Little League Baseball World Series Championship.
The registration fee for those interested in the softball clinic is $80 and includes a clinic t-shirt and admission to the world of little league® museumLunch and dedicated seating at exhibition play.
The 4:30 p.m. exhibition game between Maryland and Penn State is open to the public and admission is free. Seating within the stadium, outside of the seating reserved for clinic registrants behind home plate, is based on availability and no ticket is required. Fans wishing to attend the game are asked to enter the Little League International Complex via the East Mountain Avenue entrance and are directed to park in the outfield lot of Volunteer Stadium along Borderline Road. Concessions are available and visitors are encouraged to stop by the Little League Main Gift Shop, located in the concourse behind home plate at Lamade Stadium.
The unique all-day event is named after the Little League Girls with Game initiative, which began in 2019 to honor all of the girls and women who have made the Little League program what it is today and those inspiring the future generation female participants at all levels. From written stories and feature videos to inspirational quotes and photos across all of its digital media platforms, the Girls with Game initiative celebrates the memorable moments, exciting events and inspirational people in Little League’s baseball and softball programs throughout the year.
