    That's like asking if the AWANA organization will be sued because of their pledge:

    Little League is a private organization and can have any pledge they wish.

    The Japanese teams at the Little League World Series worship the Great Baseball God—a small bust of a Mr. Lamade who donated the land for the field. For some reason they get all excited and run over and bow to the little "idol".

    From the Little League website:

    "Whether to recite the Little League Pledge, play or sing the National Anthem, or say a prayer, is entirely up to the local league’s board of directors. While many local leagues and districts include a recitation of the Little League Pledge in ceremonies, it is not, and has never been, required to be recited by any person involved with Little League Baseball or Softball. "

    Note: bold is my emphasis
