Celebrating 75 Years Of Little League History

That's how long it's been since the very first Little League game in Williamsport back in 1939.
Williamsport, Lycoming County -- There's a lot of history on this stage. 75 years to be exact. That's how long it's been since the very first Little League game in Williamsport back in 1939.

87-year old Richard Hauser remembers that game like it was yesterday. He joined six others, nicknamed the "Original Boys of Summer", for an anniversary celebration at the Community Arts Center.

11-year-old Avery Eiswerth is a pitcher for the Mundrick's Greenhouse team in Williamsport. She had the honor of presenting the first players to the cheering crowd.

The audience was treated to a special premier of "Little League: A History", a documentary that shares the stories of past and present, and how one baseball game changed everything.
