League History

The History of Georgetown Little League

The beginnings of present-day Georgetown Community Little League date back to 1951.  Over the years, league name changes and mergers in the community have formed what we now know as Georgetown Community Little League located at 6400 Trier Road, Fort Wayne, Indiana 46815.  The following is a summary of the league’s beginnings and transformation…

Northeast Little League
The league organized and began play in 1951, but quickly changed its name in 1952 to St. Jude’s League.

St. Jude’s League and Georgetown Community Little League
The St. Jude’s League playing site was located at the intersection of East State Boulevard and Randallia Drive at the current St. Jude’s Catholic Church.  As the league grew, St. Jude’s League moved to the Children’s Home property located on Lake Avenue and changed the league name to Lakeside League.

As the community and league continually grew, it was deemed a new facility was needed.  In 1973, new baseball facilities were built at the intersection of Trier and Maplecrest Roads on YMCA property.  The league became known as Georgetown Community Little League.  Early sponsors included Magnavox (now Raytheon), Superior Fuel and Wolf Bedding Company (current sponsor).

Holy Cross League
The Holy Cross and Georgetown leagues merged in 2008.  The Holy Cross Little League began play in 1955 and played at Holy Cross Lutheran Grade School at Crescent Avenue and Springfield (now St. Joe River Drive), before moving to Lions Park.  In 1991 Holy Cross chartered the first district-wide Challenger Baseball Program and along with Northcrest and Fraternal, started major league softball.  Early league sponsors at Holy Cross included:  Old Fort Supply, Atz Ice Cream, Hefner Chevrolet (Kelley Automotive), Buschbaum Drugs, Sun Oil Company and Kinney Koncessions.
