Opening Day

Jamie Flick was honored to throw out the first pitch at Lions Field for Opening Day of South Williamsport Little League.

Over the span of 28 years, Jamie has served as a coach, volunteer, sponsor and board president for this organization and it means a lot to him. So do the kids.

Lions Field in South Williamsport is the second oldest Little League field in the world – and it showed as the field became unplayable a decade ago. 

That changed under the leadership of Jamie and countless businesses, families, and members of the community.

Under Jamie's tenure, the league raised over $250,000 to create one of the best playing fields in the United States — at no expense to tax payers.  

Since the restoration, more than 1,000 children from Williamsport, Loyalsock, South Williamsport, Montgomery, Lewisburg, Montoursville and beyond have played on the field.

Jamie also started the tradition of having each player after every game, win or lose, run out to center field and touch the faces of former Little Leaguers Abe Howard and Sean Thomas, both killed in action. That tradition continues today.

In 2014, Jamie and the South Williamsport Little League received the Carl Stotz Community Award, given to only one league per year in the entire country that exemplifies leadership, character and dedication.  

The Carl E. Stotz Little League Community of the Year Award is focused on honoring a league that creates a player-centric culture and is aligned with the goals of the Little League International Strategic Plan.
