Whereas on June 6, 1939, the first Little League Baseball game was played in Williamsport, Pennsylvania; Whereas by 1955, Little League Baseball was found in every State, and today is played in thirty-three countries, with over two million five hundred thousand youngsters participating, culminating in a world series each year; Whereas, from its inception, Little League Baseball has been a vehicle for promoting the virtues of fair play, good sportsmanship, and the desire to excel through friendly competition; Whereas the goal of Little League Baseball has always been and will continue to be to instill in children the merits of teamwork, discipline, and responsibility through the simple game of baseball; Whereas the value of Little League Baseball will always be measured more by what a child learns than by whether a child wins; Whereas over seven hundred and fifty thousand adult volunteers give of their time and energy to make Little League Baseball possible; Whereas over four hundred and fifty Major League Baseball players and countless leaders in business, industry, and politics, including Members of Congress, are Little League Baseball graduates; Whereas by action of the Congress, Little League Baseball is a federally chartered program committed to the mental and physical development of children during their most formative years; Whereas in 1959, President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed `National Little League Baseball Week' as the second week in June, and that week has been celebrated every year since; and Whereas in 1989, President George Bush, himself a former Little League Baseball coach, recognized and offered his personal congratulations to Little League Baseball on its golden anniversary: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That the Congress recognizes the fiftieth anniversary of Little League Baseball and its lasting contribution to the Nation's youth.
