History of Jefferson County Little League (JCLL)
In 1953, the initial charter for a local league was received from Little League, Inc., and the league name was Potomac Little League. At that time, each town had their own team and played on a local field. In August 1981, Potomac Little League and the Jefferson County Board of Education began discussions for a Little League Complex. In 1982, a commitment was made by the County Commission to allow five fields to be built behind Jefferson High School in Shenandoah Junction, and the league name was changed to Jefferson County Little League (JCLL). Work began in September 1983, and the complex was dedicated on April 28, 1984.
