Little League World Series

Howard J. Lamade Stadium is a baseball stadium in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Each year, it hosts the Little League World Series, along with Little League Volunteer Stadium. Lamade Stadium was built in 1959 and holds 40,000 people, most of whom sit on the outfield berms. The stadium is 2/3 the size of a Major League Baseball stadium, with 60 ft (18 m) basepaths, a 46 ft (14 m) mound, and after the change in 2006, 225 ft (69 m) fences.

Renovations

The stadium was changed in 1992 when lights were added so that night games could be played as part of expansion of the series to round robin play.

In 2006, the fences were moved back 20 ft (6.1 m) to 225 ft (69 m) to all fields; the wall forms one-fourth of a true circle. This was done because home runs were becoming too common. Other renovations included the extension of the stadium roofs to the end of the grandstands and additional seating with backing were added in place of bleacher seating.

In August of 2011, Lamade Stadium set an attendance record for the game between La Grange, Kentucky and Clinton County, Pennsylvania, with 41,848 people in the stands and on the hill. It was later broken on August 29, 2015 when Lewisberry, Pennsylvania defeated Pearland, Texas with 45,716 in attendance.
