Little League Played by Kids, for Kids

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT -- We all know you go to the Little League World Series to see the games, but there's a lot more to do there than you might think -- especially if you're a kid or a kid at heart.

Hundreds of kids just like Josh Pallerino are busy finding fun elsewhere at Little League.

"This is awesome. You have to check it off the bucket list!"

After three days in South Williamsport, Josh and his buddies from western Pennsylvania were confident they knew their way around the Little League complex. That's why we asked them to show us around.

"We are going to play games. We are going to watch some games and do this stuff," said Tyler Pallerino, age 11.

Thousands of fans the same age as the players on the field come to the games every year. Thanks to several Little League sponsors, there's a section on the complex built just so kids can have fun.

"I knew it was going to be really fun, but I didn't know they were going to have all of these booths and stuff," said Mike Waltmire, age 13. "I just thought you were going to go there, slide down the hill and watch the games. They have a bunch of booths and there's a bunch to do when the games aren't going on."

Kids aren't the only ones who can have fun. The games seem to bring out the kid in just about everyone.

"It's an awesome place to be a kid," said Rick Bender of Lewistown.

Bender was brave enough to go down the hill with his grandsons.

"Brings back your younger days, your memories of younger days where things were fun and you didn't have any worries."
