Cities in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina Selected as a Finalists for LL Southeast Region Headquarters

Three cities have been selected as the finalists for the relocation of the Southeast Region Headquarters of Little League Baseball and Softball, it was announced today by Stephen D. Keener, President and Chief Executive Officer of Little League International.

A total of 18 cities in six states of the eight-state Southeast Region had submitted proposals to become the new home of the headquarters. The three finalist cities are, in alphabetical order:  Greenville, S.C.; Morganton, N.C.; and Warner Robins, Ga.

“The Little League International Board of Directors was impressed both by the proposals from all three cities, as well as each of the communities,” Mr. Keener said. “We’re looking forward to working with each of them in the next phase in the selection. The process for finding a new home for the Southeast Region Headquarters site is moving along well.”

Currently, the Southeast Region Headquarters is located in Gulfport, Fla., a suburb of St. Petersburg. Acting on an offer from Pinellas County Schools, Little League International sold the 12.8-acre property earlier this year. The Southeast Region Headquarters, which will be occupied by regional staff until the end of this year, is the oldest of Little League’s five regional offices in the United States.

The Southeast Region Headquarters serves as the administrative center for Little League Baseball and Softball activities in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. The annual Southeast Region Championship game (formerly the Southern Region Championship game) is played at the Regional Headquarters, and has been televised nationally on ESPN or ESPN2 every year since 1997.

The next step in the selection process is for Little League International officials to visit the three finalist cities, although no specific dates have been set for these visits. Little League expects to announce the new site for the Southeast Region Headquarters in early 2009.
