Michael Serino Nominated to Represent Eastern Region on Little League International Board of Directors


Little League’s Eastern Region has nominated one of its members for election to the Little League International Board of Directors, it was announced today by Stephen D. Keener, President and Chief Executive Officer of Little League Baseball and Softball. The election took place recently in a vote by the region’s District Administrators.

Michael Serino, of Moscow, Pa., will replace David Ruotolo, from West Haven, Conn., on the board.  His nomination is subject to the approval of the Little League International Board of Directors at its spring meeting this month. If approved, Mr. Serino will be seated on the Little League International Board of Directors when the 24-member Board meets in November.

Each of the nine Field Directors on the board, one from each of the nine Little League Baseball and Softball regions, serves a three-year term.

“Mr. Serino is a long-time Little League volunteer who is passionate about providing the best for the leagues in both of his districts,” Mr. Keener said. “The diversity in the experience and background of all our board members is a great asset in advancing the mission of our program. Mr. Serino has a varied background in our organization and we look forward to his contributions as a member of the board.”

Mr. Serino has been associated with Little League for 55 years. He spent his first 30 years in the West Scranton (Pa.) Little League serving as a manager for 15 years, and later serving in every local league office except treasurer. He served as President of the league for 15 years.

He then spent 12 years as the President of Tri-County Little League, now Western Wayne Little League in Moscow.

After spending 10 years as an Assistant District Administrator while also serving as the Umpire in Chief for Pennsylvania District 17, the Moscow, Pa., area native presently is the District Administrator for Districts 32 and 17 in Pennsylvania. Mr. Serino, who has 26 leagues in his two districts, has been the District Administrator for District 17 for 12 years and has led District 32 for the last three years.

The father of four, Mr. Serino is retired after a 40-year career working at the Tobyhanna (Pa.) Army Depot.  He received the Commander’s Award for Civilian Service from the Department of Army for his service to the Army Depot. He is still active with Operation Santa Claus, a holiday program conducted by the Army Depot.

“I am proud to be a part of the Little League organization,” Mr. Serino said. “I look forward to the future of the organization and plan to contribute to that future as a member of the Board of Directors.  I also want to represent the Eastern Region district administrators, who also supported me for this position, as best as I can. It will be an honor to serve the organization in this position.”

In 2010, in the Eastern Region, there were 802,980 Little League players on 53,532 teams in 11 states and the District of Columbia. In terms of the number of players and teams, the Eastern Region is the largest of the nine Little League regions.
