Last weekend, we took a weekend trip to Williamsport, Pennsylvania for the 67th annual Little League World Series—and, boy, did we have a blast! The free youth baseball event (admission is available on a first-come, first-served basis), which runs through August 25, pits 16 Little League teams—8 from the United States, 8 international—against each other.

In addition to watching the junior sluggers play at the baseball tournament, we saw kids taking part in tons of free activities (one of the most popular was sliding down the the grassy hill that overlooks Lamade Stadium on a piece of cardboard!) throughout the weekend. Other highlights: Watching mascot Dugout dance with the teams before they took to the field, learning about new cultures while listening to other countries (Chinese Taipei, Japan) chant coordinated cheers and witnessing the special comraderie between the kids (we saw players and coaches reciting Little League pledges before each game and opposing team members congratulating each other on home runs).

If you have a young baseball fan at home and can't make it to Williamsport this year, make sure to plan a trip for next summer. In the meantime, keep posted on all of the action by watching the live coverage, including this weekend's finals, on ESPN.

RECOMMENDED: All free things to do with kids this summer
