PLEASE NOTE: THE NOVEMBER 1ST DEADLINE IS FAST APPROACHING.

Attention Umpires! We would like to take this moment to send a special note of appreciation to all Little League Baseball and Softball Volunteer Umpires that plan to submit Umpire Tournament Requests to the Eastern Region Headquarters; all of which will be considered for a possible 2016 Little League Baseball and/or Softball Regional Tournament Assignment or World Series Tournament.

Please understand that the November 1st deadline is fast approaching; any application that is submitted after this date will NOT be considered. There are many deserving umpires within the region that will request assignments and meet the deadline, and therefore any late applications simply cannot be considered.

Official notification of such assignments will then be made to all specific umpires and District Administrators.

Congratulations to Red Land Little League from Lewisberry, Pennsylvania for winning the Little League Baseball United States Championship!

It's been a whopping 17 years since a team has rolled through Bristol and gone on to win the entire Little League Baseball World Series.

Keystone Little League from Clinton County, Pennsylvania previously set the old official single-game record in 2011 at 41,848. 

Red Land Little League will play Tokyo Kitasuna Little League from Japan for the title of best team in the world tomorrow on national television. The game can be seen on ABC at 3 p.m.
