There was also an unveiling of 10 bronze statues in Market Square to recognize the heritage of Little League in the community that took place at 1 p.m. prior to the block party on Aug. 22. The statues of a first, second and third baseman, catcher, batter, three runners, umpire and manager, will be at the corners of the square adjacent to home plate and the bases.

The manager will be Carl E. Stotz, who founded Little League so his nephews would have a place to play organized ball. Stotz founded what is now the largest youth sports organization in the world 75 years ago in Williamsport. Its international headquarters and baseball world series for 11- and 12-year-olds were moved across the river to South Williamsport in 1959.
