Quote from: DJKleinbard on December 09, 2020, 05:41:34 pmIt's odd because it is the same in my area. We had 8 Babe Ruth teams when I played (I'm 24), and last I heard it was down to 4. However, I remember around the time of the LLWS last year, ESPN was reporting that Little League participation was up 3,000,000 compared to 2013. It sounds like they're doing an ok job of getting younger kids to play, but a bad job at retention as they get older
