The US Postal Service issued four Youth Team Sports commemorative stamps in 2000. The sports, basketball, football, soccer, and baseball, are popular with American children and were selected because they encourage a healthy lifestyle, promote socialization, and provide opportunities to learn cooperation and teamwork.
