Howard J. Lamade Stadium is a baseball stadium in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Each year, it hosts the Little League World Series, along with Little League Volunteer Stadium, one of the few sports events where children 12 years old (and under certain conditions, 13 years old) and younger take the center stage. Lamade Stadium was built in 1959 and holds 40,000 people, most of whom sit on the outfield berms. ==Renovations==The stadium was changed in 1992 when lights were added so that night games could be played as part of expansion of the series to round robin play..In 2006, the fences were moved back 20 feet (6 meters) to 225 feet (68.5 meters) to all fields; the wall forms one-fourth of a true circle. This was done because home runs were becoming too common. Other renovations included the extension of the stadium roofs to the end of the grandstands and additional seating with backing were added in place of bleacher seating. - Source: Wikipedia

Every step around the bases and every swing at the plate made Jake Fromm's back ache.
