2013 ASAP Information for Hosting Tournaments: Little League® International Tournament rules (Selection of Fields, page T-8 Baseball and page T-9 Softball) state that any league or District hosting a section, state, division, region or World Series level tournament must have an ASAP Safety Plan submitted and approved by Little League International.
District Administrators, Assistant District Administrators and League officials must check the Safety Plan status page on the Little League Data Center to confirm that the safety plans of all host leagues have been approved prior to their selection as a host site and the start of any tournament games above the District level of play. We encourage District Administrators to choose host leagues for all levels of tournament play that have approved ASAP plans and have actively implemented them throughout the regular season.
