To: 2017 District 18 Little League Personnel:

On behalf of District 18 Little League Baseball and Softball, I would like to welcome you to our 2017 Little League season. This year we will have over 3500 ballplayers playing baseball and softball throughout our district.

To keep up to date on all activities please follow us on our website on Facebook: California District 18 Little League Baseball & Softball

At the conclusion of the regular season we will be hosting our annual Tournament of Champions followed by our All-Star Tournaments. In the 64 year history of District 18 we have had two teams make it to a Little League World Series:

  • 1978 Sunnyslope Senior League Softball – 3rd Place
  • 2010 El Monte American Junior Baseball – National Champion Runner-Ups

I had the privilege of being involved with both of these great teams. Traveling to a World Series is something I hope all of you get to enjoy someday. Hopefully this season! It is truly an incredible experience.

How District 18 Started



1952 - The first city to join Little League Baseball was South Pasadena National Little League.

1953 - California District 18 was established under the leadership of District Administrator Jim Hamilton. That year San Gabriel American, San Gabriel National, San Gabriel Eastern and Sunnyslope Little League established programs.

1954 - Was a big year as six more leagues including Temple City American and Temple City National joined District 18. In 1958 Roy Praisler took over as the District 18 Administrator.

I961 - Mr. Praisler decided he needed an assistant to help him with the operation of the fast growing District 18. He decided to appoint a young league president from Temple City National Little League to be the Assistant District 18 Administrator, that person was Al Millham. Al Millham held the position of Assistant District Administrator until 1966 when he was elected as the District Administrator for District 18, a position he held for 28 years.

At that time in 1966, the International Little League program had grown to include more than 1,600,000 players. In that same year a future District 18 Administrator, Milan Mrakich, was born in Temple City, California.

During Al Millhams administration, District 18 grew from having only Little League Baseball to include Junior, Senior and Big League Baseball as well as all divisions of softball.

1984 - Al Millham was elected for a three year term by his peers to the most prestigious honor of serving in the highest capacity a District Administrator can serve – as the representative of the Western Region on the Little League Baseball International Board of Directors in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Two years later in 1986 there were more than 2.5 million Little Leaguers playing worldwide.

1994 - Al Millham retired as District 18 Administrator  and appointed long time assistant Milan Mrakich to become District 18 Administrator.

Today, within District 18 there are 12 Little Leagues representing over five thousand youngsters in all divisions of baseball and softball annually and throughout the world there are over three million children on six continents playing in the Little League program.
