Little League Baseball is a big deal in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Such a big deal that it is touted as the birthplace of Little League Baseball. Statues of baseball players adorn the street corners and the weekend I was staying downtown I realized that this place was all about baseball. Even my hotel had artwork featuring baseball in every room and throughout the hotel. Who knew? Not me – I was just in Pennsylvania for a bridal shower.
A friendly couple in the hotel elevator asked me if I was in town for the tournament and when I responded negatively they said I should be glad I was leaving before it started because it became a zoo. Honestly I am glad as well. I am not a huge baseball lover and must admit that I was happy when both boys decided against tee ball when they were little. Don’t think I am un-American, please.
But aside from all of the baseball themed restaurants and shops I was able to walk around a little bit and discovered some really truly beautiful architecture. Of course I had to shoot a few shots so please enjoy a quick walk around Williamsport with me.
I definitely would not mind going back when I have more time to explore. The downtown seemed very walkable and there were a lot of really nice new buildings to compliment the older architecture.
Are you a baseball fan? Did you have kids in Little League ? I would love to hear about it so leave me a comment and Comment for a Cause for Find Your Anchor.
