SLIDE SHOW: When Pro Athletes Were in Little League
The Little League World Series is one of my favorite events of the summer.
The annual event takes place in Williamsport, PA in August with a collection of little leaguers ranging from 11-13 years old. Parents serve as coaches of kids who take center stage in front of a nation-wide audience. One never knows the players who will transition from little leaguer to big leaguer in a matter of years, but it's interesting to take a look back to find recognizable names.
CNNSI.com put together a slide show of athletes as they appeared in their innocence at little league baseball players. Not all of the athletes featured played in the LLWS, and not all are known for their baseball prowess, but it's a cool look back at athletes in the prime of their youth.
