The History of the South Baltimore Little League (SBLL), established in 1957 and chartered through Williamsport Little League, has provided recreation services for thousands of children aged 4-18 in South Baltimore and surrounding areas for more than five decades. We are a nonprofit 501C3 volunteer organization that operates a Little League Program on East Fort Avenue in the heart of (South) Baltimore City, Maryland. 

Our Mission is to instill in the community’s youth the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage, and respect for authority. We want to give today’s youth every opportunity to be well-adjusted, strong and happy children who grow into decent, healthy and trustworthy adults and community leaders. Our intention is to provide a supervised baseball and softball program that supports youth development through positive quality leadership that focuses first and foremost on sportsmanship and team.
