Overview & History

Overview
Pacific Little League was founded in 1965. This little league is now the home for more than 800 boys and girls playing baseball and softball between the ages of 5-18.

Pacific Little League operates under the National Little League rules and guidelines, and has made only slight modifications to some of the playing rules in an attempt to enhance the playing experience for our children. The following is an excerpt from the National Little League organization:

History
Pacific Little League became a charter program in the National Little League organization in 1965. Since then, Pacific, a volunteer-based organization, has provided services to over 20,000 boys and girls in the greater Edmonds/Lynnwood area, with an estimated impact on 10,000 families. Pacific has forged successful partnerships with the Cities of Edmonds and Lynnwood, along with the Edmonds School District.

The Echelbarger Fieldhouse was built with donated funds amounting to over $300,000 in 2000. Lights were added to Fields 1 and 2 in 2001, and to Field 3 in 2005. A major upgrade to the kitchen was done to the fieldhouse in 2005 to add ventilation, gas grills and ovens. All the facilities were paid by "Capital Improvement Fundraising" by Pacific Little League. No taxpayer dollars were contributed.
