Halfway Little League was founded by in 1939, the original diamond was in the Park on York Road. The park doesn’t exist anymore, but the memories do. In the 1950’s Halfway Little League moved to Doub Road and became a chartered Little League baseball program in 1956. Doub Road has been since renamed Sterling Road. The land was the property of a farmer who allowed his land to be used for youth baseball. There was a Minor, Major and Senior League Field on the property. The Major League Field was named Burger Park, after the generous farmer.
In 1982 Halfway Little League moved to Halfway County Park, now known as Marty Snook Park. The complex is now known as the Joseph E. Widmyer Complex. Changes have been made to the fields over the years to make adjustments for the Leagues needs. Halfway continues to have a thriving baseball program including T-ball, Rookie, Minor and Major Divisions, each division playing on their own field.
During the nineties Halfway Little League won three District One championships (1991, 1998 &1999). The 1998 and 1999 teams were led by Nick Adenhart a hard throwing right hander that left many players walking back to the dugout in confusion on how to go about getting the bat on the ball. Nick went 9-0 during that two year run and kept getting better threw high school and in 2008 found himself on the mound starting for the Anaheim Angels in the Major Leagues. Nick was taken from us on April 9, 2009, decades too soon. Halfway Little League rededicated the Major League field in Nick’s honor. Nick first began to gain notoriety as a special player on this field, now known as The Nicholas James Adenhart Memorial Field. We will never forget Nick’s fastball or his infectious laugh.
In 2010 Halfway Little League returned to their winning ways by winning their first Maryland District One Little League championship in eleven years. Over the years Halfway's teams have competed and performed well in many tournaments including 2017 11/12 team's first place finish in National Little Leagues Thomas Evans Tournament.
In 2012 Halfway Little League added Fast Pitch Girls Softball to their program. It was a great success, not only did the kids and parents have a wonderful time but the girls rewarded all of the fans with a District Championship highlighted by an unforgettable nine inning game to clinch the championship. Softball prospered at Halfway but after a few years of declining player numbers the softball program was placed on hold in 2018.
Since 2009 Halfway Little League has hosted the Bret Crowell tournament in late July. This is a 11/12 B team tournament that brings teams from around the area and always proves to be an exciting week of baseball for our area players. Halfway Little League looks forward to continuing this tradition for many years to come.
