About

Little League Major Diamond

OUR HISTORY

Ancaster Little League provides recreational baseball opportunities to a population of 25,000 within the boundaries of the old Township of Ancaster.  Ancaster is located on the western end of Lake Ontario, one hour from Toronto and one and one half hours from Buffalo. Founded as a town in 1793, the old town of Ancaster is one of the oldest European communities established in the province.  In 2001 it was amalgamated into the City of Hamilton. 

Since 1957 we have continuously ensured the youth of Ancaster have been able to engage in organized baseball.  Ancaster is a community committed to baseball.  Our continuing volunteer base and a very dedicated Department of Parks and Recreation provide exceptional baseball and softball facilities. 

We are the home of the World T-Ball Tournament held annually over the August long weekend. We also host the John Stokoe (Heritage Day) Major Boys Tournament & the Father’s Day Classic and  Minor Boys Tournament in June.

MISSION & VISION

The objective of Ancaster Little League is to implant firmly in the children of the community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and reverence, so that they may be well adjusted, stronger and happier children and will grow to be good, decent, healthy, and trustworthy adults.

All Directors, Officers and Members of Ancaster Little League shall bear in mind that the attainment of exceptional athletic skill or the winning of games is secondary, and the molding of future citizens is of primary importance.
