Little League Baseball World Series to be Tobacco-Free

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (Aug. 1, 2006) – For the first time, the Little League Baseball World Series will be a completely tobacco-free event.

In past years, use of all tobacco products was prohibited in the Little League World Series stadiums. This year, use of tobacco products will not be permitted on the 66-acre Little League International complex.

“This new policy is designed for the comfort of our thousands of guests, players and volunteers,” Stephen D. Keener, president and chief executive officer of Little League Baseball and Softball, said. “The intent is to have the Little League Baseball World Series continue to be a safe and enjoyable experience for all who attend the tournament.”

Those entering the Little League International complex with tobacco products will be permitted to carry these items with them during their visit to the Little League World Series. Security personnel have been instructed to remind all visitors of the tobacco-free policy.
