Williamsport - Little League

Ascension Parish and Impact Sports of Gonzales have jointly announced a Cooperative Endeavor Agreement.

Impact Sports has been authorized to manage and operate the Parish Youth Baseball program for children aged 3 to 18. Impact Sports is committed to providing an outstanding experience for the kids, families, coaches, and partnered sponsors of AP Baseball.

“This Public/Private Partnership will bring our recreation program to the next level,” said Parish President Clint Cointment. “And affiliating with ‘Little League’ gives our youth an additional opportunity for league play.”

AP Baseball has been chartered as a member of Little League Baseball (www.littleleague.org). The first little league baseball game was played in 1939 in Williamsport, Pa.

Today, over 6,500 communities around the world play Little League baseball. The affiliation with Little League has programs for kids ages 4-16.

Each year in late August there is the Little League Baseball World Series in Williamsport with over 200 games televised on the ESPN family of networks.
