Little League Congress in 2022 Shifts from the West Coast to the East Coast

In an effort to celebrate and promote the 75th Little League Baseball® World Series, the Little League® International Board of Directors has made the decision to relocate the 28th Little League International Congress from Anaheim, California to Williamsport, PA. The Little League Congress will take place June 10-13, 2022.

Little League International Announces Expansion is postponed until 2022

In August 2019, Little League announced an expansion plan which would increase the number of teams participating in the Little League Baseball® World Series from 16 to 20 and the Little League Softball® World Series from 10 to 12. Two years later, Little League has announced that "due to the ongoing impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic, that included the cancellation of the 2020 Little League World Series and Regional Tournaments, the Little League International Board of Directors will postpone the expansion of the Little League Baseball® and Little League Softball® World Series until 2022." Therefore, the new Mountain and Metro Regions will have to wait until 2022 to crown their first champion.

The regions in the United States that will be affected the most for the baseball tournament will be the East and West Regions. Currently the West Region Headquarters in San Bernardino simultaneously hosts the the Northwest and West tournaments and sends the two tournament champions to compete in Williamsport. The restructuring of the regions will create a new region and tournament called the Mountain Region. The new Mountain Region will consist of Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, and Montana. The Northwest Region will see the state champions from Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and Idaho while the West Region will include Arizona, Hawai'i, Northern California, and Southern California. We should expect that all three tournaments will run simultaneously in San Bernardino and the three tournament winners will advance to Williamsport for the Little League Baseball® World Series.

The Little League Softball® Regions will be restructured in 2022 and they will mimic the current structure of the baseball program. This means that the West Region tournament will be split to support the creation of the Northwest Region consisting of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming. The West Region will be reduced to Arizona, Hawai'i, Nevada, Northern California, Southern California, and Utah. The San Bernardino will send the two tournament champions to the Little League Softball® World Series.
