By appointment of Litttle League CEO, Stephen Keener, Larry served on the Little League International Advisory Board from 2013 to 2016 as one of two Western Region representatives. 

The Advisory Board consists of current and former district administrators and assistant district administrators as well as other local league volunteers whose many years of experience at the district and local levels of Little League operations is highly valued by Little League International.

For many years, Mr. Burch volunteered at the Western Region Headquarters. He announced many tournament games for the teams’ local radio station play-by-play. Until recently, Larry was the head of the Media Relations committee at Western Region.

Little League was Larry’s passion. He was a Little League player and was involved with his son’s participation in Little League.
