“Pin-Up” of the Week: 2015 Little League World Series Grand Slam Parade Committee

There are about 300+ pins hanging on my wall.  All pinned to lanyards.  A large chunk of the collection are pins from the Little League World Series.  They all vary in rarity.  One of the harder to find pins that I acquired this year was this 11th Annual 2015 Grand Slam Parade Committee pin.  I’ve never seen this specific pin for sale before.

The Grand Slam Parade has kicked off the Little League World Series for the last 11 years.  Its a big celebration that features every team participating in the World Series.  Plus there are marching bands, antique cars, fire trucks, military equipment, the list just goes on and on.  They usually get a baseball player to be the Grand Marshall.  Over the years they’ve gotten many retired/HOFers to take on that role.  For 2015 they had Jim Leyland.

Its not uncommon for people in the parade to be giving out pins.  Throughout the city of Williamsport there are different places you can buy the annual Grand Slam Parade pin.  For the past seven years these pins have been split into two pieces like a puzzle.  I don’t think the committee pins are made available to the public.  You probably need to be on the committee to get one.  This pin slipped through the cracks.
