As of this morning, Little League's new Facebook fan page has 3,170 members. On Twitter, "LittleLeague" had 611 followers.
Is this a useful networking tool for the kids, the parents - or neither? I'll check back in a month or so to gauge how quickly the community is growing.

Dear Little League Baseball and Softball Volunteers and Fans:
Little League International has entered the world of "social media" with the creation of Twitter and Facebook pages.
A wide range of information is currently available on-line, and we encourage everyone to follow Little League's "Tweets" through Twitter, and stay current with happenings throughout the Little League program through Facebook.
Soon, Little League will have Facebook pages and Twitter posts dedicated to specific aspects of the Little League program, including Little League Softball, Little League's Teenage Divisions, Challenger Division and the Little League Urban Initiative.
