In July and August, there is nothing more thrilling than the fun and excitement surrounding the Little League® International Tournament, and we want all our fans to enjoy the most of their time at our events. With the 2023 Little League Baseball and Softball Southwest Region Tournaments getting ready to kick off starting this weekend, we wanted to share some important information for fans to know before enjoying our exciting event.
Family Fun for FREE!
One of the most exciting parts about attending any Little League event is that there is no cost for admission! In addition to the fun and excitement on the field, each event provides the opportunities for families and communities to come together for once-in-a-lifetime memories, teachable life lessons, and most importantly fun for fans of all ages.
Know Before You Go
The Southwest Region Tournaments are meant to be an amazing experience for all fans, and the best way to enjoy your time in Waco is to understand the important information about ticketing, parking, schedules, and more by visiting LittleLeague.org/Southwest and clicking on Visitor Information.
Sportsmanship Starts with You
The foundation of Little League is rooted in sportsmanship, and the best way to ensure our players and children are displaying positive sportsmanship throughout the tournament is to be a role model yourself. All of our coaches and umpires are volunteers, and the players on the field are all children, so we ask that while you enjoy the excitement and competition that is displayed on the field, you do so in a positive manner during your time at our events.
Respect Those Around You
Little League events are a place of inclusion where families, fans, and tourists from all around the world gather together to have a fun and memorable experience, so we ask that you are respectful of the differencing cultures, opinions, and beliefs of those around you.
Enjoy the Excitement All Summer Long
