The Little League Pledge was written by Peter J. McGovern,
the late president of Little League Baseball, 55 years ago.
The Pledge made its first appearance in the February 1955 "Little Leaguer" magazine.

Its text has remained unchanged in the half-century since then. 

I trust in God
I love my country
and will respect its laws
I will play fair
and strive to win
But win or lose
I will always
do my best
