Sen. Toomey Honors the 75th Anniversary of Little League During Visit to World of Little League®

toomey152

U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), a graduate of East Providence (R.I.) Central Little League, visited the World of Little League®: Peter J. McGovern Museum in South Williamsport, Pa., on Wednesday, July 2, to recognize the 75th Anniversary of Little League.

Stephen D. Keener, Little League International’s President and CEO, presented Sen. Toomey with a customized 2014 Mid-Atlantic Region jersey that featured his last name and the number 75, in honor of Little League’s diamond anniversary. The Senator also received a copy of his 1975 Senior League Baseball team roster.

“I played Little League until I was 14, and those were fun times,” said Sen. Toomey, as he looked over the roster.

“We are honored to have Senator Toomey visit us in South Williamsport to commemorate Little League’s 75th Anniversary,” said Mr. Keener. “Little League is a valued community asset in neighborhoods worldwide, and a fabric of society in Pennsylvania. We are happy to enter into the Independence Day weekend with Senator Toomey at the World of Little League.”

On June 24, 2014, Sen. Toomey introduced a resolution on the floor of the United States Senate recognizing the 75th Anniversary of Little League Baseball. A copy of the Congressional decree is currently on display at the World of Little League.

Mr. Keener escorted Sen. Toomey on a tour of the World of Little League, along with Dr. Davie Jane Gilmore, Chairman of the Little League International Board of Directors and Patrick W. Wilson, Senior Vice President of Operations and Program Development.

Sen. Toomey, and his wife, and Kris, live in Zionsville, Pa. with their three children Bridget, Patrick, and Duncan.
