For most of the year, Howard J. Lamade Stadium remains an iconic tourist destination and is used on occasion throughout the Spring and Summer for local Little League games and Summer Camp sessions. Each August during the Little League Baseball World Series, tens of thousands of fans fill the ballpark to cheer on the youth on the field and enjoy the memorable atmosphere. It is an amazing experience, to be sure. While memorable to experience, the ballpark itself is simple. It is estimated that approximately 45,000 fans could watch a game at Lamade Stadium, including those on the terraced hills beyond the outfield fences. The stadium seats between 3,300 fans, but the exact number of seats available is not known since admission is free and most of the seating during the Little League Baseball World Series is first-come, first-served.
Little League Volunteer Stadium
Located just north of Howard J. Lamade Stadium, Little League Volunteer Stadium made its debut in 2001. Accommodating approximately 5,000 spectators, the stadium has been used for competition during the Little League Baseball World Series since the expansion from eight teams to 16, which was implemented in 2001. The stadium also features batting cages and an area for pitchers to warm up underneath the stands behind the dugout on the third base side of the stadium. The stadium also plays home to the Little League Baseball World Series Opening Ceremonies and the Little League Challenger Division Exhibition Game each year.
