About La Grande Little League

Mission Statement

La Grande Little League offers baseball to kids so they can have fun, develop as players and teammates, learn life lessons, and be part of an inclusive community.

We are a community focused organization

One of the great things about Little League baseball is that it is community focused. The goal is to get as many kids playing baseball as possible. We get all the kids who want to play baseball in our community together. We draft them into even teams. Then they play each other right here in our community, on our fields, with our families doing the coaching and umping.

The regular season is where all the kids can get together and play with and against all the other kids in their neighborhood. There is a level of competition that is balanced by providing opportunities for all players to develop. This is then followed by the tournament season where select teams of the best and most involved players can go on to play against select teams from other leagues.
