Below is information on media credentials for all of our hosted events this summer. Media Credentials are only given to media outlets providing editorial coverage of the events, and subject to the discretion of the Little League International Communications Department. Please check at the bottom of this page for more detailed information on media guidelines and other relevant resources for each event. NOTE: Media credentials are not transferable and cannot be issued to anyone under the age of 18. Please note that all media credentials are subject to revocation if the rules and media guidelines set forth by the Little League staff are not followed.
All U.S. Region and Teenage Division World Series Tournaments: Accredited members of the media in good standing are welcome to cover these events as long as they display a media credential and/or other apparel that distinguishes their media outlet they are covering for at all times. Upon arrival, members of the media must check-in with the Tournament Director or Assistant Tournament Director to let them know they are covering the event on site. The media credentials and/or other apparel that distinguishes their media outlet must be worn at all times while on the property. Please note that media access is subject to revocation if the rules and media guidelines set forth by the Little League staff are not followed. Coverage should be focused solely on the event and game activity, as outlined in the media guidelines, and subject to access restrictions at each location.
Little League Baseball® World Series (Williamsport, Pa.) and Little League Softball® World Series (Greenville, N.C.): Every member of the media looking to cover the Little League Baseball World Series and/or Little League Softball World Series in person is required to submit a media credential application, which is contingent on a standard national criminal background check. Only those who are approved for a media credential will be permitted on site to cover the event, and are required to wear it at all times.LBWS & LLSWS Credential Application
