We played on a sandlot all summer. There was no little league back then.
Vernon Law
My dad is the reason I actually started watching wrestling. My dad was never big into sports; we were all big into sports as kids, and he’d go to our Little League games or whatever and not really know what was going on, because he didn’t know about sports, but he knew about wrestling.
John Cena
Baseball began early for me. When I was 5, my father took two Little League bats and put them on a lathe. He whittled them down and sanded the bats so they were the proper size for my brother and me. He began by throwing tennis balls to us. Eventually, we practiced hitting and fielding at a field near our house.
Keith Hernandez
I’m a soccer dad at heart. I want five kids, and I want to get married. I want to coach Little League.
Mekhi Phifer
I was a tomboy through and through; I hated dresses and was personally miffed that I couldn’t join the Little League team.
Sandra Faber
I’m the youngest of five kids, and I wanted attention. And in Santa Barbara, there was lots of theater going on, so for that area, it was a little bit like playing Little League baseball. There were dance classes, theater classes, and I just loved it.
Anthony Edwards
All American males are failed athletes, and it was big time even if it was Little League. It meant a lot to you.
Nick Nolte
We worship an awesome God in the Blue States, and we don’t like federal agents poking around our libraries in the Red States. We coach Little League in the Blue States and have gay friends in the Red States.
Barack Obama
Our parents helped us, or we wouldn’t be here. Lacy Van Zant and my mother used to sign for amps or loan us money to get to the gig or take us in their car. It’s just like little sports guys – Little League and football players – whose parents help them. That’s why they get good.
Gary Rossington
We have an obligation to spread amateur baseball both at home and abroad. Building up the game at all levels – Little League, Babe Ruth Leagues, the colleges – is in our own self-interest. That’s where the pool of talent is – and also of fans.
A. Bartlett Giamatti
I played Little League for one year. That was it. Then my mother realized I liked books and threatened my father. I owe her forever for that.
Brad Meltzer
I was a big kid who never played any organized sports. You played a lot of sports in the streets and I excelled at that, but I was never confident enough to go out for Little League. I was afraid I might get cut, or I might not be able to hit the ball.
Howie Long
I ran track for my school. I played football, but I didn’t play for my high school; I played for a little league team.
Nate Robinson
I was playing little league baseball when Bruce Jenner was winning the gold but I don’t think I was really paying attention at that time.
Dan O’Brien
I played Little League. I was a ‘pitcher.’ But we had a pitching machine, so I was just basically an ‘in-infield’ shortstop because all I got to do was field bloopers six feet from the plate. I couldn’t hit, so that was pretty much my entire job.
Freddie Prinze, Jr.
I thought the Little League fields were big. You look back now, and its obviously the smallest field you can play on.
Cody Bellinger
The great thing about Little League was that anyone could play it.
Keith Hernandez
You’re playing a game, whether it’s Little League or Game 7 of the Word Series. It’s impossible to do well unless you’re having a good time. People talk about pressure. Yeah, there’s pressure. But I just look at it as fun.
Derek Jeter
I was very active in the Parks and Recreation department. I recall a lot of the things we had to do, from the trips for the department to organizing a Little League, those sorts of things.
Mike Scully
My husband and Charlie Sheen played Little League together. They’ve always been best friends.
Heather Langenkamp
I’m among the first girls ever to play Little League baseball, and to my knowledge, the very first in western Illinois. It was 1976, and I was a nine-year-old tomboy whose older brothers had played.
Therese Fowler
You remember driving your kids to Little League, and they’re nervous about making the team, and you’re encouraging them. Forty years down the road, we’re having the same conversation. Only it’s about the Ravens and Steelers, or Stanford and Cal.
Jack Harbaugh
I used to go to my kids’ soccer games and I was the only parent who wasn’t screaming, because I’d have to do a show that night. It was hard. Moms and dads get more emotional at those soccer and Little League games than at a professional game.
Neil Diamond
When I was 14, I played in a summer league. One night the chief umpire asked me if I would like to try umpiring. There was a Little League tournament coming up and he needed more umpires than he had.
Jim Evans
School work and intellectual interests such as music and the arts were not especially important to me while I was growing up, although mathematics, my favorite subject, was fun. Baseball was my first passion: I played sand lot and Little League and rooted for the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Robert C. Merton
When you join the NFL, you start from scratch. As long as I’ve been playing – which has been since I was eight years old – the game becomes harder at every level. Little league, high school, college – they’re different stages you have to go through, and professional sport is completely different again.
Reggie Bush
I played Little League baseball, but I also played basketball. Basketball was my primary sport. When you play basketball seriously, a lot of times, through the summer season, you continue playing. So that replaced me playing baseball.
Chadwick Boseman
My father was a Little League dictator. That really affected me, his control-freakery, his impunity, his arbitrary unreasonable power.
Junot Diaz
Growing up in Bloomington, Minn., I loved the ritual of dressing for Little League – in white socks, blue stirrups, belted pants, a double-knit jersey, and the cap I’d hold over my face to screen out mosquitoes in right field.
Steve Rushin
My friends and family know I love playing baseball – Little League through college. And every year in the annual Congressional Baseball Game for charity played at Nationals Stadium.

Tug McGraw
Most healthy people want to coach Little League, they want to go to church and they want to have great coworkers at the office and they want to put on faceplate when Nebraska’s point football on Saturdays. That’s the most natural way to live.
Ben Sasse
I was the best guy, you know, all through Little League and Pop Warner and that kind of stuff. But when I went to high school, I was undersized. I didn’t grow. I was behind the whole puberty cycle. I didn’t like high school.
Pete Carroll
I love when violent, dangerous art is done by people who are not violent and dangerous. I love that when George Romero was making ‘Dawn of the Dead,’ he was coaching his son’s little league team.
Penn Jillette
Even when I played in little league as a kid, I liked making friends, but I didn’t want to be there, really.
Kurt Vile
The first sport I played was baseball. I remember being on the Little League team and someone pitching the ball to me for the first time. I was ready to no longer hit the ball off the tee, and an adult pitched it to me underhand.
Ashton Eaton
Most parents were, like, Little League coaches and all that. My dad was a wrestling fan. Instead of going out and playing home run derby with my old man, we just watched wrestling together.
John Cena
