In 2013, ESPN dished out big money to televise the Little League World Series, giving the baseball organization $60 million through 2022. That's a lot of ad and marketing dollars. If all these companies are making money off children, the kids should get a slice of the pie.

One of the appealing aspects of the Little League World Series is the obvious love for the game that drives these kids to perform. Adding money to the equation will only corrupt these children and ruin the purity of their passion. Little League players should not be paid.
