If you do not receive tickets for the World Championship Game you can watch the game from the terraced hills at Lamade Stadium. Tickets are never required for the terraced hills. All you need to do is arrive and find a place on the terraced hills from which you can watch the game. You may want to bring a blanket and/or lawn chairs.
Tickets for Other Games
Although a ticket is required for the World Championship Game, you do not need a ticket for any of the other games. Seating for those games in Lamade Stadium and Volunteer Stadium is first come, first served. It is suggested if you plan to sit in the stadiums, you arrive early. You may also watch the games from the terraced hills at Lamade Stadium. Please note that game passes may be distributed upon entering either stadium to assist World Series ushers in controlling crowd size. These passes are not available in advance and will be distributed by ushers prior to the respective games.
Souvenir tickets for the terraces are available by writing to: Attention – Souvenir Terrace Tickets; Little League Baseball International; 539 US Route 15 Hwy.; PO Box 3485; Williamsport, PA 17701.
