SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (July 11, 2011) – The Little League Baseball and Softball International Tournament will feature 69 televised games throughout the month of August. ESPN and its family of networks, ABC, and the New England Sports Network (NESN) will provide the live coverage.

SEE DAY-BY-DAY SCHEDULE BELOW.

ESPN, which will televise 54 Little League International Tournament games next month, expanded its coverage last year adding the semifinals of seven U.S. Little League region tournaments. As it has every year since 1997, each of the eight U.S. region finals will be televised by ESPN or ESPN2.

This is the fifth consecutive year ESPN and its family of networks will televise each of the eight World Series Championship games live. Coverage of Little League’s International Tournament begins with the airing of the Big League Baseball title game on Aug. 3, from Easley, S.C. The other division championship games that will be televised include Big League Softball on Aug. 10, from Kalamazoo, Mich.; Senior League Softball on Aug. 13, from Lower Sussex, Del.; Little League Softball on Aug. 17, from Portland, Ore.; Senior League Baseball on Aug. 20, from Bangor, Maine; Junior League Baseball on Aug. 20, from Taylor, Mich.; and Junior League Softball on Aug. 20, from Kirkland, Wash.

The Little League Baseball World Series championship game will culminate the coverage of the 2011 International Tournament on Aug. 28 at 3 p.m. on ABC as the U.S. and International Champions meet to conclude the 16-team, 11-day tournament in South Williamsport, Pa.

This year, 17 games of the Little League Baseball World Series will air on ESPN 3D. The games that will be televised on ESPN 3D also will air on either ESPN or ESPN2. All games of the World Series will be shown in high definition.

NESN will provide live coverage of six New England Region Little League Baseball games, beginning Aug. 9, including the two semifinal contests.

Little League Baseball and Softball is the world’s largest organized youth sports program, with more than 2.5 million players and 1 million adult volunteers in every U.S. state and scores of other countries.
