Being a part of a Little League World Series is one of the greatest experiences in all of youth sports. Expanding the Little League Baseball World Series and the Little League Softball World Series gives many more kids everywhere this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity each summer. Nothing comes close to the feeling of representing your home community on the grandest stage for the world to see. From players to coaches to volunteers, this expansion will allow more players, volunteers, and families in our program to experience something they will remember forever.
To provide the World Series experience to more children around the world, the Little League® International Board of Directors has approved expanding the number of teams at the Little League Baseball® World Series to 20 and Little League Softball® World Series to 12.
