Little League Volunteer StadiumEdit profile
Little League Volunteer Stadium is a baseball stadium in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Along with Howard J. Lamade Stadium, it annually hosts the Little League World Series, one of the few sports events where children 12 years old and younger take the center stage.
Volunteer Stadium was built starting in 2000 to accommodate the growth of the Little League World Series, and was completed in 2001. Its approximate capacity is 5,000, almost exclusively in the main stands, with limited lawn seating in the outfield. Volunteer Stadium is used for double-elimination pool play only. All elimination games and consolation games are played at Lamade Stadium.
In 2006, the home run distance was increased by 20 feet, from 205 feet to 225 feet, to all fields; the outfield wall forms one-fourth of a true circle.
