Officially opened on June 26, 2021, the new, 15-acre Little League® Central Region Complex is located at 7185 S. Indianapolis Road in Whitestown, Indiana, just west of I-65 at Exit 130. The complex features the Central Region Headquarters administration building, a gift shop, concessions stand, restrooms, batting cages, and a full-size, lighted Little League field with stadium seating, bleachers, and a press box.
As we look ahead to the 2021 Little League Softball® Central Region Tournament and Little League Baseball® Great Lakes and Midwest Tournaments, we are also looking for volunteers and volunteer groups from the Whitestown community to come out to support our tournament.
In addition to volunteers, Little League® International and the Little League Central Region are also looking for additional capital support and donations to assist with this development as well as to create the best possible atmosphere and experience for all the players, volunteers, families, and fans who visit Whitestown. These funds will help provide the necessary amenities and accommodations at the new Central Region Complex, and allow for future maintenance, upgrades, and development.
Financial donations can be sent directly to:
Little League Central Region
7185 S Indianapolis Road

During its annual August meeting in 2018, the Little League® International Board of Directors approved an offer to relocate its Central Region Headquarters to Whitestown, Indiana. After an initial decision to move to Zionsville in 2017 was unable to be fulfilled, the Little League International Board of Directors, committed to relocate within the Indianapolis area, ultimately decided that the optimal parcel of land in the nearby communities was the one identified in Whitestown. Remaining in the Zionsville-Whitestown community allowed Little League to continue to work with individuals who have been involved in the project since the beginning stages and provide those neighboring communities with the opportunities they were committed to.
Overall, the land in Whitestown met the requirements listed in the initial Request for Proposal from Little League International and allows for a family-friendly environment for the tournaments and events held each year at the complex. Whitestown has been very committed to this project and has been a supporting community that appreciates and understands the ideals of Little League. We are looking forward to the continued support and dedication of the entire community as we work together to bring Little League Baseball and Softball home to Whitestown.
Construction of the new complex officially began on July 23, 2020 and on June 26, 2021, Little League welcomed the Whitestown community for the official opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony as it geared up to host the Little League Softball® Central Region Tournament and Little League Baseball® Great Lakes and Midwest Tournaments.
Established in 1989, the Central Region Headquarters is one of five Little League regional offices located in the United States and serves as the administrative center for Little League Baseball and Softball activities in Kansas, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
