The A. Bartlett Giamatti Little League® Leadership Training Center was dedicated on June 19, 1993. Named for the former president of Yale University and Major League Baseball Commissioner, this full-time headquarters provides support for the world’s largest region, by population, of Little League®. This facility hosts several clinics throughout the year, training adult volunteers in the leadership skills necessary to operate successful Little League® programs and provide an enjoyable and educational playing experience for Little Leaguers®. Breen Field is the crown jewel of the facility, hosting every game of the baseball and softball region tournaments.

The Little League Baseball® East Region Tournament was played in a number of locations throughout the northeast through 1976. Following a 10-year stint in Newburgh, New York from 1977 through 1986, the tournament moved to its permanent home of Bristol, Connecticut in 1987. A single East Region baseball champion was crowned through 2000. From 2001 through 2021, the New England and Mid-Atlantic Region Tournaments were played at the East Region headquarters. In 2022, the Little League Baseball® World Series expanded, with the Giamatti Center hosting the Metro, Mid-Atlantic, and New England Region tournaments.

In 2023, Massapequa International Little League from Massapequa, New York won the Little League Softball Mid Atlantic Region tournament, going undefeated at the regional tournament and outscoring their opponents 19-3. Massapequa International later went on to win the 2023 Little League Softball World Series in Greenville, North Carolina. Once again going undefeated at the World Series, the Mid Atlantic champions from New York defeated the Southeast Region in the championship game by a score of 5-2.
