THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY OF LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL



Written by Jack Blocker

Mark Steinmetz spent much of the 80s and early 90s photographing Little League baseball games, where many children and young teens first experience America's zeal for competitive sports. The kids in Steinmetz photos are generally aged between six and 13, meaning they're old enough to want to win, but too young to possess the nuance, patience or grace that winning often demands. These unpolished players provided Steinmetz with moments of unbridled joy and, because he often focused on the losing team, even more utter dejection.

The collection features in Steinmetz new book, Players, which you can buy here.
